Introducing the Olivia Reverse Knot Dress from Pink Poodle Bows

Alisha from Pink Poodle Bows just released a new pattern, the Olivia Reverse Knot Dress in sizes 6mo-12.  This pattern makes it easy for beginners to sew this criss-cross bodice dress.  Long straps and two buttonholes in the back let you tie a big bow in the back.  Add a contrast band, ribbons, or lace to dress it up.  I added a vintage lace trim at the top of my short contrast band and a ribbon hem. I also like the stiffness the ribbon adds to the skirt bottom, giving it a little extra fullness.  Find out how over at Oliver & S free Lazy Days skirt tutorial

The only other adjustment I made was to enclose the side & skirt seams inside the bodice lining. Alisha makes this tutorial easy for beginners, so if you want hidden seams you need to know how or find an online tutorial.

The Lil Diva Pants are also now available in big girls sizes, 6-10.  They are an easy, wide-leg pant with cute contrast bottom hem.  My girl loves them and they only take 1 hr to sew!

Thanks, Alisha, for allowing me to test these patterns.  Find more Pink Poodle Bows on Etsy, Facebook, Blog & Big Cartel
