Hello Beautiful!

I am so very excited to share the Charlie dress by mingo & grace today. This is mingo & grace’s first pattern and I could not be more thrilled for the owner Farrah! I had the opportunity to test this pattern and I absolutely adore it. By the time testing was done I had already made 3! Yes 3!!

The key steps to get the fitting just right…

Don’t go by your child’s usual size without looking at the Finished Garment Measurements chart. This dress is designed to be fitted at the shoulders and comfortable around the chest (per instructions). For example the dress I made my 9 yr old was a size 7 in the chest and length.  The dress fit perfect and she will be wearing it for Thanksgiving (yes, I know I am already thinking about the Holidays).

Here are the details on how to purchase this ADORABLE dress pattern:

1) Charlie will be released exclusively through the Sewing Rabbit’s Pattern Member Site July 1- 14, 2014.
