Something a Little Different! Pattern Review

Hi Everyone :) Kate here! 
I thought I would save the "Mix N Match" for mid week this time around 
and write something a bit different for the weekend!

Aside from helping the amazing Lou out at Patterns Only and The Oz Material Girls sometimes, I also have my own little facebook page {*shameless plug alert* Two Little Rascals ;) } and I looove to create Quilts, Raggys, Bunting ..... AND fabulous kids clothes.

I was extremely excited when Boo! Designs released a new pattern not long ago - The Grace Dress! So I thought I'd take it for a test run and let you all know what I think of it!

As with most Boo! Designs patterns you have heaps of options and choices to make a gorgeous and individual dress!

The first choice of course is fabric! I found the puuuurrrrrfect fabric for the dress type I decided on. Here it is all cut out n ready to sew!

Meow ;)

This pattern is expertly written with easy to follow steps and clear diagrams.
Here are a couple of my own pics as I went along :

Pin, pin, PIN! :)

Thank goodness for 1 Step Buttonholing! heehee

... speaking of Buttons :

Meow again! ;)
Aren't they puuurrrfect for a cat dress?!!

I am very pleased with myself too. I taught myself to make a rolled hem with my over-locker for the very first time! If you haven't done it yet, drag out your over-locker's manual and read up - it's easy as pie and look at these rolled-hem ruffled straps, they are to-die-for! :

I think they are the best ruffles I've ever sewn!


This pattern is extremely straightforward and look at the results!!! :

If you missed the previous links to this gorgeous pattern, HERE it is again!
It would make the perfect Easter project :)
