The Birthday Dress by Debbie Brooke

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. If you would like to follow my pattern making process please join the facebook group Debbie Brooke Patterns. I appreciate everyone who helped me with this process. A special thank you to my family and friends. I could not have done this without my sewing community of friends. The testers were amazing and I'm so glad everyone enjoyed making it.

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.
