New Sewing Pattern: Happy Girl!

Happy Girl

I am diligently working to get this pattern released before the end of February! Thanks to all the feedback from the wonderful testers and all my testing I did the dress has changed a little bit from the original 1920's low waist inspiration (and believe me you will love the changes from the original!) It fits better and the sewing is much easier! So what has changed? I got rid of the waist band. I redesigned the bodice top. I added an option gathered panel at the bottom or the pleated panel option and I added side ties which really gives it the sweetest look when on! I finished the directions just now, printed them out and will proof read them tonight. I still need to get the pattern pages on paper and put into pdf. When is the last day of February? It is Sunday!!!!! Reality is: this pattern will not be available until Wednesday of next week only because I give the pattern pages to my husband to make into pdf!

The picture above is one of the cover dresses. I still need to add the fabric covered buttons on the scallop accent and hem the bottom. There will also be an option to have an above the knee length and a below the knee length. Wouldn't this make a cute Easter Dress!!? I just might make the two cover dresses two of my daughters Easter Dresses! We will see!

As always, all of my patterns are designed with the beginner in mind and this one is no different! I have made it very simple to sew and still give it that sweet boutique look! The downloadable version will be available this week and the physical version will be several more months but it will have the cutest bonus pattern to go along with the physical!
