Handmaiden's Cottage Releases New Picnic Petticoats Pattern with Sale Pricing and Sale Codes!!!

The Handmaiden's Cottage released the Picnic Petticoats pattern today! I was chosen to test this girly pattern along with the 18" doll.


I made the size 4 for my model. She wears a size 4 or 5 in ready to wear garments. The size 
4 is a great fit!  Loved this sweet dress and the dolly dress.  My model for the dolly dress was an 18" doll from a big box store.  Great easy sew with great directions. Loved how Lynn, the designer, went into great detail about using the gathering foot! She uses a 1/2” seam allowance for most seams. I have used the wide ric rack on dresses before but always sewed a seam though the middle of the ric rack. Never thought about stitching both edges like she showed! :) Her directions are spot on with lots of great clear color pics.

This is a great pattern to use all those left over scraps. I actually had been hoarding the Michael Miller Dick and Jane fabric from several years back to make the dress. the other fabrics were scraps.

As you can see below the dress has lots of fullness so your princess can twirl! Little girls love the twirl factor!


The dress is designed in a reverse knot fashion. This is one buttonhole in the back bodice to lace the shoulder straps though to make the pretty bow.



On the Etsy listing Lynn has included a pic which includes fabric requirements and finished dress measurements. I love when I can see how much fabric I need before I buy a pattern. Because I am a gal that likes to sew late at night, knowing the fabric requirements helps me decide if I want to buy the pattern to sew up at midnight!

Lynn is available to answer questions by email or join her Facebook group The Handmaiden's Cottage. You can follow her on her blog also.

The pattern is sale priced at $6.00 until Monday 5/26/2014. regular price is $10.00. 

Lynn also has added some coupons that will be ongoing! WOW!!! Save 10% on purchases of $20.00 with the code 10FOR20. Save 15% on your purchase of $30.00 or more with coupon code: 15FOR30.

As always if you would like Cranberry Ridge to sew up this special dress for your princess please email me!

Till next testing time, 
Connie
