This is the Georgia Dress pattern by Little Lizard King:
And my vintage cotton version:
The dress features pretty gathers at the chest and a clean a-line design.
About this pattern:
PDF format, available in sizes 9 months to 6 years.
What I liked: There is a photograph to correspond with nearly every step in the directions, and this dress is a good one for beginner sewers. There are only two pattern pieces to keep track of (which means very little room for error in my book). No zippers and no buttons required!
About the maker: The designer at Little Lizard King is the daughter of a seamstress, so she knows her way around a machine. She is now a momma herself and is inspired by her daughter to keep coming up with new designs. Some of the newest additions to her shop include doll clothing to match her big girl designs. I am totally in love with this!
And she's giving away two patterns from her shop to two readers. Just visit Little Lizard King's Etsy Shop and come back here to leave a comment saying which pattern you'd like to win. Two winners will be drawn via Random.org on February 21st to receive their pattern of choice.
