I can’t wait to share with you what the AMAZING Dana from MADE has just released! Her new pattern, The First Day Dress/Top. I can’t thank Dana enough for letting me test this NEW pattern. I mean this woman is the Queen of the blogging world and even more importantly, she is very sweet!!!
Nitty Gritty: (this pattern has so much to offer)

(wow that was a lot!)
For my Test I choose the A-line Dress with no sleeves. I love the silhouette of this dress, however, the next dress I make will be 1 size larger. My daughter had a growth spurt and did not let me know, HA! One of my favorite parts (I have so many) of the A-Line pattern was I only had to cut ONE pattern piece, yes ladies ONE! Can I get a High Five?!? Another favorite in working with this pattern was it showed me how to fully line the dress. I love it when I can learn something new from a pattern.
Fabric by Josephine Kimberling, Hope Chest by Blend

This pattern is so well written and with beautiful pictures that it would be great for an Advanced Beginner Seamstress. Even an advanced seamstress may learn some new tricks like I did.
Dana has been so nice to offer TWO giveaways of the pattern. See Rafflecoptor below for more details and how to sign up.
