This last week I have been privileged to be a tester for a brand new pattern designer. Her name is Dawn and her freshly minted company is "Olabelhe" . The designs are beautiful, feminine and everything that a little girl loves. Like myself, Dawn is a WAHM who loves her kids and loves to sew. I have been a fan of her pretty dresses for quite some time now, so I jumped at the chance to test her very first pattern. The "Kirstin" skirt is a really fun and very easy pattern. Ahnalin chose the fabric from my stash, as well as fabric for another skirt that is still in process. I chose to make this first skirt exactly as the pattern instructed. And what I found was that this design is a fabulous blank slate. So many fun design elements can be added. I will post the next skirt soon so you can see some fun changes. Dawn really wants mamas to have fun sewing this pattern and sees sewing, as I do, as a way to express individuality.
Now I know you will want to order this pattern NOW. But you will have to wait just a bit. It will be available for purchase very soon. I will update when it hits the market.
In the meantime, here is the picture of my first test of her pattern.
