Before the new year, Megan T., Catherine and I started discussing the idea of putting together a collection of patterns. We brainstormed and after pinning our little hearts out on Pinterest, we decided to go in the direction of flower girl dresses. Airy, light, spring time weddings is what we were inspired by. Our minds flooded with lace, chiffon, trims, parasols, beautiful shoes (lots of shoes 😉 ) and overall a “dreamy” look. Here is a look at what we had in mind….
The Dreamy Collection is full of wonder and joy! Beautiful, whimsical, sweet and girly patterns that make the perfect outfit for flower girls, special occasions and photo shoots. They are full of little girl’s dream dresses; dresses you can treasure forever. Below, from left to right, Juliette, Annabelle and Isla.
The first pattern, Juliette, released this week. Juliette comes in sizes 1/2 – 14, see size chart below. This beautiful pattern suitable for knit fabrics. (Blog post here on choosing fabrics for Juliette). The full, twirly circle skirt comes 3 lengths: top, dress or maxi length. Add ruffles to your maxi for a stunning, showstopper of a dress! The front bodice is fully lined and the back has elastic at the top. The dress is built in with negative ease to accodate the full, long skirt. You can dress this up for a flower girl dress or your daughter can wear the top, dress and simple maxi for everyday.
Here is a round up of all the beautiful tester photos. So let’s go through the options… get ready for photo overload 😉 First up is top length, which is the perfect length to pair over leggings, jeans, shorts or pop a tutu under!
Dress length. You can also layer top length over dress length for an adorable double skirt.
Finally the showstopper, maxi length with ruffles.

Love, love, love this pattern! Made two for my 5 yo granddaughter to take with her on her first plane ride to go from Wichita to San Diego to meet her Uncle Scott and family. The first was a pink flowered maxi trimmed in lace. She wore her pink cowgirl boots and twirled through the airports in Chicago and Phoenix telling everyone her “sewing grandma”, as opposed to her “cooking grandma” (not me!) made it. She received so many compliments!!! The second was a pale lilac trimmed with 3 rows of white 3″ lace–beautiful! Because of the knit and style, these dresses both fit six months later–a miracle for this child who grows so fast. Thanks!
