DIY Gir's Dress: The Blaire Dress

I have been just itching to get back to sewing, photographing and blogging.  It's been nearly 3 months since I've had any spare time to do so, but I hope to be back in action soon!

Today I thought I'd show off my daughter's back to school dress... from last year.  Yes, last year. 

I made this dress as one of my very first pattern tests for Sew Sweet Patterns.  If you haven't checked out Sew Sweet Patterns before, you definitely should browse their wide array of patterns at their website:

This dress was made using the Blaire Pattern and I just love how it turned out.

It features flutter sleeves and a Peter Pan collar.

It also features a zip back. 

The Blaire Dress comes in sizes 12-18mos-8 and features a full step-by-step tutorial that is perfect for beginners.  I was definitely a beginner when I made this dress and I think it turned out great.

And look, you can even find PiePie on the listing for the pattern!!  Look how little she was!
