Hi everyone! I hope you week is going well. We have a week full of family and wedding activities and we are very excited about that. I wanted to pop today and share this cute little dress kit c/o Little Dress Kits that I made for miss E (all opinions 100% my own) and give you a chance to win one of their kits too!
Katie is the creator of these kits and got the idea when she was pregnant with her daughter. She wanted to sew things for her baby, but was a beginner sewer and was very frustrated with the patterns she was using. So once she got some sewing experience, Katie decided to create kits that would make it easy for anyone to sew a children’s clothing. I was really impressed at how clear the directions were and I loved how she puts the patterns on adhesive paper. You just peel the pattern off, stick it on the fabric, and cut it out. Super simple. The adhesive paper came off easy and I stuck it back on the adhesive paper backing when done to save for another time.

I can totally see miss J doing this as one of her projects. In fact, she was a little upset they didn’t have a kit in her size lol.
The kits also come with all the supplies you need: thread, buttons, fabric, label, etc. There are kits for boy clothes and kits for girl clothes. I made the Reversible Tie Side Pinafore Kit for miss E. I love the retro feel to it. It is for sizes 12/18 months size and it fits her still as a size 3. It would be more of a dress on the 12/18 month old, but it’s more like a top on her now.
I made little pants to go with the top (tutorial here) using a wonderful breezy cotton gauze i found. It matched perfectly. Now she has a super cute outfit.
These are lovely kits and I’m happy Katie is offering a kit of winner’s choice for a giveaway and also offering 15% off to Happy Together Readers!!!!
