First Day Dress pattern NEXT week!

I’m so happy to report that….the First Day Dress pattern will be available NEXT WEEK!
It’s been a long time in the works.
And you guys have been patient. Thank you.
The pattern ranges from size 2 to 10 years old, with 5 different looks, and 4 different lining options.

I have most of the sizes tested and covered.
But I need 3-4 people to test sizes 8, 9, and 10.ย 
If you’re interested please leave a comment and include your email address.
Timeframe is short and would need to happen in the next few days.
* UPDATE:ย  I have enough pattern testers for the larger sizes now, but thank you THANK YOU all for offering. You guys are so great!

    I’d love the opportunity to test the size 8, please! I have a 7.5 yr old daughter with crazy long legs and an affinity for cool/cute dresses or skirts. Plus, I know how to sew but not very experienced with using an actual pattern (tend to wing it or use simple patterns I can create myself, I.e. Your circle skirt, which my daughter and her friend now have several of!). So if you’re looking for someone like me to tell you how user friendly the pattern is, I’d love to volunteer my services:-)
