Eloise Dress at Sunset

Eloise Dress Pattern sewn by Ginger House Deisgns

I’ve been testing a lot of patterns lately 🙂 I love pattern testing and every time I see a testing call come up, I just have to apply!  Sometimes, I have to remind myself not to apply to every single one, since time is a valuable commodity.  But anyway….

When the call went up for the Eloise Dress from Bubby and Me Creations (who test sewed the Queen Street Dress for me recently here), I just absolutely knew that I had to test! The dress is PERFECT!

The details that she put into the pattern are so charming.  I particularly love the pleats, which are on both the front and back. And the yoke would be a great place to switch up the fabric to really make it really pop.  I’m doing that on my second version, which I have already cut.

The instructions are clear and detailed and contain very professionally taken photos to go along with each step!

On this version, I cut the size 1 (US size 12-18m) based off the chest measurement and the fit in the chest is perfect!  It has just the right amount of room to grow.

All these pictures were taken at my mom and dad’s house.  They have a bunch of land and it’s so wonderfully relaxing to go there for the weekend.  Molly loves running around out there and Jane (blog readers haven’t met Jane yet, have you??) is the happiest in the world there, getting to run free and bark to her little hearts content!  Everyone, meet Jane, the poorly groomed Westie:

This particular weekend wasn’t as relaxing as usual, since Molly got sick (or something, she didn’t have a fever… weird) and we were up all night with her.  But at least we got all these lovely pictures before she got sick 🙂
