Elsie Dress

A few weeks ago I treated myself little bit the Elsie Dress pattern from Sew Sweet Patterns. If you've never heard of them you must go check out their website. This is my first pattern from them and I can't wait to pick up a few more. One of the major selling points for this frugal sewing mama is that most of their dress patterns have a huge size range, so I can make it multiple times as she keeps growing.........

The pattern was easy to follow and so much fun to sew. I learned a few new tricks, like butterfly sleeves and am so thrilled with the outcome.

I know, the picture would be so much cuter if little bit was wearing it but 1. she's in bed and 2. I made the size up, I plan on having her wear this with a little sweater and some leggings over the winter. Which is also why I loved this pattern, it can be worn by itself or layered.

 Here's a few close up shots of some of the details. The pattern didn't call for the ric rac or the pocket, but I am obsessed with pockets and ric rac so how could I resist.
Lastly, my confession.......I still have three little buttons to sew on the back. I picked random ones out of my stash. I think their super cool and funky.

I'm just itching to get the Nancy Dress time. The little collar is so sweet.

Fine print:
This pattern was purchased by me.  This is my opinion and I simply wanted to share my find and brag on my cute dress.

    So... if I have a girl someday... I think she'll want you to make one for her ;-) For sure.
