Miss Matilda Dress and Top Pattern: Testers

I have such an incredible group of women behind the scenes that have been helping me test all my patterns to ensure a perfect pattern for our customers. Like I mentioned last week, they are an incredibly talented group of women and I am so proud to share some of their darling creations with you.

This is Crystal’s (Stitched by Crystal) little cutie wearing the Miss Matilda Dress in size 12 month. We shortened the sash a little bit since these pictures were taken so that it didn’t extend beyond the hem of the dress. Crystal chose a gorgeous eyelet fabric with solid lavender accents. So perfect for this sweet little lady!

This darling little outfit was created by Katie Romagosa from Leave You In Stitches. Her Miss Matilda Top is pictured with the Skip and Play Pants and Capris (Size 6 month – 10 Years) that will be released this week as well. Katie used several different patterned fabrics and added lace detailing to the top for added interest.

Here we have our size 10 tester, Christie Jones, who sewed this darling top for her daughter, Cate. My favorite part about this dress / top is that it looks sweet on a little baby girl and classy and sophisticated on a little bit older girl.

This beautiful blue and cream colored dress is from Serena GarciaDiaz. Serena had posted a picture over on Facebook of a dress she had made using the free ‘Summer Picnic Dress‘ and I fell in love with her work. Her photography is just beautiful and the contrasting colors in the dress really bring great attention to the ruffles and sash.

Here we have the most adorable creation from the very talented Melissa Myers. This is the Miss Matilda Top paired with another variation of the Skip and Play Pants and Capris (Size 6 month – 10 years) that will be released this week as well. Melissa did such a wonderful job pairing all these different patterned fabrics and the buttons pull it all together!

The beautiful purple and blue creation pictured above is from the love, Trisha Parker from Sweet N Sassy Girls. Trisha did a re-test on our size 7 just to make sure we had nailed down a few details with the fit and I absolutely adore what she came up with for her little girl!

And finally, I’ll leave you with the very talented Hayley from Mouse House Creations. Hayley used an additional fabric and incorporated it into the sash. The white ruffles and the pink sash are the perfect accents for this beautiful blue fabric!

Whew! That’s a lot of cuteness going on! I wish I could share them all with you, but I’m sure this has been enough Miss Matilda inspiration for one day. I can’t say it enough…….these ladies are just incredible and I am so thankful for the time and energy they put into helping me with these patterns.
