What was your inspiration?
I loved the apple print fabric, it's so crisp and colorful. I wanted to create a fairly simple dress for very little girls and babies. My patterns and designs are all about inspiring people to be creative and style their own garments by choosing fabrics and trims that work together --- it's great when you can say "I made it" and be proud of your creations.
What are you most proud of?
This is my newest pattern and I think I did a really nice job on the sewing tutorial.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you are a real beginner just take your time, follow the tutorial --- it sets everything out in the correct sequence and if you need to make a few practice runs just try out on some scrap fabric --- you might need to practice making and sewing the bindings. Once you have made this little dress you will have a number of good basic skills up your sleeve.
