Lillian Pintuck Dress

My friend Hayley from Mouse House Creations is releasing a new pattern today and this pattern has been a long time coming!  I think she first made this dress over a year ago and it has been in testing for months!  I helped her test the dress and it went through several revisions and the final product is pretty much awesome!


I love all of Hayley's designs, I have made every single one of her patterns, most of them several times (I shared a Norah tunic last week I made from one of her patterns).  They all have a great simple, classic style and the Lillian Pintuck pattern is no exception.  It is a simple A-line dress or top with ten little pintucks along the neckline and it has options for short or long sleeves.


The dress has bias tape along the neck line that closes in the back with a bow, so no buttons or zippers to sew!  And it has an option to make the dress completely lined, which makes it a great pattern for using eyelet fabrics.


I sewed up one dress and two tops with the pattern during testing, and they all turned out so cute! The first one was a dress made with some fabric I had leftover from Em's Christmas PJ's last year.





The second a top.  The top pattern has been lengthened a bit since this test version, but it was still adorable even a little short.  I think it has a bit of a Cindy Brady look in those orange flowers :)




And the third one I made was a top out of flannel, I paired it with some simple elastic waist pants and she wore it as her Christmas PJ's this year.




This pattern goes on sale today only at Up Craft Club and will be there all week for only $7.  Hayley will also have it available in her shop for the regular price of $9 starting next week.
