I'm very excited to announce that the Birthday Dress is officially on sale! This fully lined dress is made to twirl and everyone who tested it agreed. The high neckline, gathered sleeve, high waistline, and decorative pleat make this dress vintage and modern. The dress is designed to be tea length but the smaller the size the higher the hem. The sizes should be true to what you would buy at the store. I used Janie and Jack and Carter to get the size chart and based the dress off of those sizes. 

If you have any questions about this pattern do not hesitate to contact me by email, facebook or this blog post.

Another happy customer...I love this smile.



Here are some pictures from Braelyn's 2nd Birthday - she is wearing 18m. She is tall enough for the 2T but she is very skinny and fits into 18m clothes better. 

Here are some pictures of Fabiana on her 5th birthday. She wears a 4 at the store so that is what we made. Her dress is made with a Rayon so it hangs a little bit different.

  1. The dresses are beautiful. You did a great job with the pattern!

  2. Thank You!! To make the birthday bash a perfect event I work hard and put in a lot of effort on the decoration, food, and most importantly the birthday dress of my cute little girl. She is just beautiful. Visit here

  3. I prefer princess party because these for little girls never go out of vogue. Making her a princess for the day with a special outfit that shines, add a crown. The cake styles and decoration ideas are of course almost endless. HG Nadel

  4. All girls are angels and they deserve to look like one on their birthday. This angelic 3D dress is very gorgeous and has sequin work on net flare which will give your baby girl a sparkling look. You can match it up with a cute floral headband and a baby pink color bellies. It's a pretty dress you can anytime choose to style your girl on her birthday.

  5. One of the most important ingredients for a kids party is fun activities. Depending on the interest of your kid, you can just look up these fun-filled themes.

  6. Hello if you are the person who designed and sold this pattern I need a replacement. I just bought this pattern at my local sewing center. I have done business with Derrell's of Pensacola for many decades. There are pieces missing and they are mislabeled. I need a correct pattern , ASAP or a refund . Pieces are mislabeled and not correct, there is no tie pattern piece, there are no sleeve pattern pieces, and what is supposed to be the sleeve piece is labeled a bodice. you may contact me at the address listed as my comment screen name.
