Deep South DIY: The Allie Dress

I have been "sewing" for about 3 years.
I have kept to mostly simple, straight-line sewing, but recently have been ready to expand my horizons to more complex products.

I found this adorable pattern for The Allie Dress over at Sew Sweet Patterns and couldn't wait to try it out!
I had an adorable purple and white polka dot fabric that needed to be used for a little LSU victory dress for my sweet Belle (I know we are a bit crazy here in the South).

It was a very easy pattern to follow and I loved the step-by-step pictures. It probably took a few hours over the course of several nights to complete, but that included lots of stopping to fix my mistakes. I am the typical "learn by doing" kind of person.

If you are looking for some beginner sewing patterns, I recommend that you check out Sew Sweet Patterns. 
Note: The people at Sew Sweet Patterns do not know me other than the fact that I buy their patterns. I have no benefit from recommending them to you except the personal satisfaction of knowing you are making precious clothes for your kids!
