Yup, I'm at it again. Another new pattern. Just in time for the upcoming warm weather...let's hope anyway! Hasn't this winter been long and awful?! Anyway, "Sabrina" is a very sweet little dress with an empire waist, capped sleeves and a double layer skirt perfect for showing off some of the beautiful new fabrics that are coming out this season. I made this one up with some gorgeous fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics in the "Girly Girl" collection. I had never seen these fabrics before until Terri at FairyTale Frocks & Lollipops introduced me to them. Needless to say they are scrumptious and the perfect weight for the warmer weather. She just got them into her shop in case you are interested. I also added a sweet little band of the contrasting fabric around the chest which ties into cute little bows under the arms. For fun and visual interest. I thought it really needed some more of the contrasting fabric to make it complete and I think this is just the perfect touch.
I will be busy making the tutorial this week so if you are interested in testing this one just email me! BTW...fingers crossed. "Natalie is done....with the exception of the cover. I really need to photograph Abby in it and hopefully it will warm up enough today so we can go out and get some great shots. It's going to be a little chilly, but Abby said she was up for it. Especially because I promised her a trip to "Claire's" afterward if she did a great job. I guess the candy shop is out...now I'm having to "pay" my model in "bling"!
