Felicia by Karrington Paige Design

Karrington Paige Design’s is making its debut with the Felicia Dress! This classic dress is stunning. I loved it to much that I made 2! In version 1, I used yellow linen and made the long sleeve version and my version 2 is a Cotten woven and short sleeves. My daughter loves both of them! I love the collar and the shirred sleeves on this dress! It includes a zipper for closure and a double hem at the bottom. This dress is a must for your little princess 🙂

Patterns for Pirates’s Walk the Plank PJ Pants

Patterns for Pirates recently had a tester competition and I decided to participate! The pattern I tested was Walk the Plank PJ pants. They can be downloaded for free by going to the Pattern for Pirates Website here.

I made the shorts version and it was quick and the directions were easy to follow. Then I got to do a photo shoot at my friend’s lake house! It was a great experience.  Here are my modeled photos.

New Release: The Rivier Dress

I was so fortunate to get to test this unique and beautiful dress! This is The Rivier Dress by Eli Monster. Click this link to purchase: The Eli Monster This beautiful dress is on sale until Saturday July 22. There are a few options to pick: Sleeveless or Cap Sleeve and also Neck ruffle or basic.  For my test version, I wanted to go all out and I made the sleeveless with the neck ruffle. I did modify one thing on this pattern. Instead of just hemming the bottom, I used bias tape in a contrasting color.  I am so happy with the results! I also really like testing for the owner because she addressed all of the tester issue during testing.  Here are some more shots of the dress. Get your copy today!

New Horizon’s (girls) Bayside Romper (Tester Post)

Up next in my week of testing is this adorable Romper.  I have fallen in love with New Horizon’s Portlander Pants and I saw a tester call in the group and knew I would love this one too! It’s perfect for my daughter and I see one in my future too 🙂 Here is a link to the pattern: New Horizon’s Patterns

Terra does a great job of her instructions. She also did many versions during testing, in fact, she would fix things as soon as issues showed up.  I loved testing for her because of this.

This pattern has quite a few options! The options I chose are: short sleeves and the shorts. You can also choose from flutter sleeves or a tank with bands, and different bottoms, such as mini skirt, knee length skirt, maxi skirt, and pants. My next one with be a tank with shorts.

As I said before, Terra’s instructions are AMAZING! She includes drawings instead of fabric pictures, which is great because you can clearly see what is the right/wrong side of the fabric piece you are working with.

I got my fabric from Hobby Lobby and I will NEVER purchase this particular fabric again. It was horrible to work with and curled like crazy. I tried ironing it and that just stretch it out. So I won’t link to the fabric!

Here are the final results. I chose to take these photos at The Cove and Concord Park. It was the perfect backdrop!

Annelaine Pattern’s Firecracker Tunic/Dress (Tester Post)

I have been busy testing for the past 2 weeks! I saw a tester call for this dress and knew I would love it for my daughter
This tunic is called The Firecracker Top/Dress by Annelaine Patterns. It can be purchased using this link.  It and all the patterns in her store are 50% off through 7/7/17 using the code FREEDOM2017 😉

This dress only has 7 pieces (front bodice, back bodice and the neck and arm bindings), so it goes together quickly. The longest part (which isn’t difficult) is the arm and neck bindings. During testing, a ruffle option was added, and I LOVE ruffles on my daughter, so of course I added that option! The directions are well written and very easy to follow. I’ll be making another soon! I also just got a cover stitch machine and easily hemmed with it 🙂

One of the cool things about this dress is the fabric. I did a give away of a pair of pants I made and a few days later, I won a box of free fabric in a facebook post. This is one of the fabrics that I won. It’s super soft and perfect for my active daughter. Check out their awesome fabrics here: Sly Fox Fabrics.  I have a hoodie coming up soon that I can’t wait to share, using their amazing fabric. Their fabric is VERY reasonably priced (and no, I have no affiliation with them, I just like their products!)

Also, if you are interested in the shorts she is wearing, I’ll be doing a blog post on them as well. I’ll link it here when it’s ready 🙂
