Sewing Patterns Blog Tour: Jess from Craftiness Is Not Optional

And to round up this first week of The Cottage Mama Sewing Patterns blog tour, we have the lovely Jess from Craftiness Is Not Optional.  Jess and I definitely share a love of creating little girls clothing and she comes up with some of the most darling silhouettes for her little ladies.  She’s pregnant with baby number three, so who knows…….maybe she’ll be entering the world of sewing for boys, but for now she’ll be sticking to girls clothing……

Jess chose to sew up the Ruby Ruffle Dress for Miss Sadie.  I can’t believe how grown up she looks here.  These kids are growing up way too fast!  Head over to Craftiness Is Not Optional and check out more pictures of Jess’s creation and enter to win your very own copy of this pattern.

  1. It is important to know what is hot with color and prints before you head out to pick out a formal dress for your little girl. Many toddler girls are starting to take more interested in what they and the other girls around them are wearing. You can glance at fashion magazines or even browse the online stores to see what styles and colors keep showing up for the season that you are in. The simplest trend, such as floral, can easily translate into a formal dress for a toddler girl. All you have to do is know what you are looking for in advance to be able to include some of the trends for the season in you dress choice.
