I've got a great giveaway for you guys today from a fabulous new blog sponsor -
Ellie Inspired Sewing Patterns
I was thrilled when Laura, owner and designer, contacted me because I think she and I have very similar style and I adore her patterns. I think many of you will really like them too. Her patterns are classic with a contemporary flare - right up my alley!
Here are a few of my favorites:
The "Dancer" skirt pattern is really fun for little girls. It's whimsical and perfect for twirling. I think there are so many ways to get creative with this look.
And how about this "Nanny Etticoat" pattern? There are so many different variations in this pattern and if you want to go ultra-girly, then go for the full petticoat. What little lady wouldn't feel special in this look?
I'm going to have to say that the "Sugar Horses" pattern is my favorite. Classic yet updated for today's modern little girl. I'm loving the ric-rac trim and the ruffles around the neck-line. I see this dress in the future for Savannah and Matilda.
And last, but not least, the "Ayano" pattern is the newest addition to Ellie Inspired. Laura has been very generous in donating much of the proceeds from this pattern to the relief effort in Japan. I think this would make the perfect "Fancy Nancy" dress for the fancy little girl in your life.
So, I've shown you my favorites and now it's your turn to tell me yours.
