More on the Forget Me Knot Dress


OK, OK, I know this is supposed to be Chloe and Pearl's blog, but I am going to take an intermission for this post to share my excitement. In the previous post, Chloe and Pearl are wearing dresses that I designed and sewed. I took the simpler dress, Chloe's, and put together step-by-step instructions, along with a pattern, and packaged it into an instructional guide. I recently put the pattern for sale on etsy and on youcanmakethis.com and it has been selling fairly well the first few days. Yesterday, I received a message from one of the talented crafters who purchased my pattern and made a dress from it (see picture above). Her dress is soooooooooooo adorable! It is far cuter than anything I put together, yet it was my pattern!

Baubles and Bits, I LOVE your dress! And your sweet little girl is so precious that she would probably make anything look good. Your blog is excellent. I especially like all the free tutorials in the sidebar.

Thank you Lori! And that is simply not true about it being cuter! Your patterns and colors are what drew me in to buying the pattern! Your girls are stunning as well. Thanks again for the awesome awesome pattern!!

Lori, I'm SO proud of you!!! I mean I have tears in my eyes looking at your first customer's design. You are an amazing designer and I can't wait to see more.

Oh Lori, how I wish I could sew. I'm just not "crafty" at all. It seems so complicated. And I even have a sewing machine. UGH!

I don't know... it's a very cute dress, but I like the ones you did for Chloe and Pearl better (especially the purple one!) You should be very proud!
