Pattern Review ~ Kate's Dress by Lily Bird Studios

I was so thrilled to finally sew a Lily Bird Studios pattern!  I've been a fan of Cecilia's designs since I first found her as So Tei-Tei.  This newest pattern is called Kate's Dress, a sweet A-line with two different yoke options and ruffle sleeves.  This design is for sizes 12 mo- 8yrs.  This dress could be worn in the fall and winter with a long-sleeved tee underneath or in lighter fabrics it's perfect for spring & summer! 

I made a size 6 and size 7 for my littlest Nugget.  She normally wears a size 6 and LBS's 6yrs fit perfectly!  The fit was just right around her chest, arms & the length hits just below the knee...darling!  You would never believe that English is a 2nd language for Cecilia - her instructions are excellent.  Helpful photos will guide you through each step of the sewing.

LBS offers a wide range of PDF sewing patterns for girls and boys. Check out all Lily Bird's fun dresses, shirts and shorts in the Etsy shop and visit the blog for special deals.  I recommend trying a Lily Bird Studios pattern!
