New Dress Pattern in the works!!!


I am finishing up the Kennedy Rose headband pattern today and tomorrow. I worked on taking photos all day today. Tonight I need to edit those photos, make some headbands for some super sweet gals, get things together for the Bloom Pillow Contest coming soon on the blog and hopefully catch a few hours of zzz in there somewhere.

Next project after the Kennedy Rose? I am working on this dress pattern. Here is a photo of the rough draft. I will likely make a few changes but the dress will be silk, long, "poofy", elegant, perfect for a wedding, photos, or a special event for your little girl. I am really excited since this is the style I love! I wish my girls could dress like this everyday but people would probably look at us strange at Target or the jump house.

Any ideas for names of this dress pattern? I had kicked around Gwyneth or something regal and elegant... Any thoughts?

If I decide to use the name you suggest, I will send you two free patterns!

Also this headband (I used the Kennedy Rose flowers) will be available for sale in the shop!

Thanks Amy for the photos!

Terese or Noelle. Very elegant dress, I'm wondering how it'd look in a cotton print... :)

I was thinking Guinevere too! GORGEOUS dress, HAVE to have that pattern!!!
How about "The Boelyn" or "The Dutchess"? I love the "renaissance" feel of the dress. Very elegant!

Hi these are my suggestions:

1) Skyla
2) Diana - after Princess Diana
3) Jacqueline - after Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Anyway, whichever name you chose would be great, can't wait to get the pattern.

I think Eleanor is an elegant name and one that you don't hear very often.

My suggestions are Arabella, Adelaide and Leonor.
