Pattern Review-As You Like It Dress and GIVEAWAY!!! CLOSED

I found this adorable little dress a few months ago on Etsy.  And I have already made several!  It is a pattern made by Jessica of Happy Together.  So of course it is fantastic!

Photobucket


Pattern Format:  pdf pattern

Photobucket

Sizes Included:  Girls size 2T through 8



What I Like about the Pattern:  So many options!  In the pattern she shows you how to make the dress (or shirt) in three or four different variations (and you all know how much I LOVE variations!).  I also love that it comes with bigger sizes included.  The directions are very well written and the pattern pieces come together quickly.  She also allows you to make and sell the dress in small quantities.


Photobucket

Anything I would change:  Nope!

Where to Purchase the Pattern:  This pattern is for sale in Jessica's Etsy Store.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

If you want a chance to win a copy of this pattern, leave me a comment.  One winner will be picked on the 12th of March.

I'd love to win, you're right, it's hard to find cute patterns that go into bigger girls sizes!

Cute! Love the criss-cross front too!
Thanks for the chance to win a copy!

I love all the options pictured and the size options too. My little girl is in 3T but if I LOVE a dress I made for her I always want it in a different pattern or color when she is oolder :).
