Love. This. Pattern.

I bought a pattern for The Brooke Dress by Brynnberlee Designs on Etsy the other day.  Something about the sweet, simple lines drew me in.  The little ruffled cap sleeves.  The pleats.  (The awesome instructions with pictures.)  Three dresses and I've had to make myself stop.

For now.  I mean, really it's been two dresses and a top.

I'll be making more of these for other little girlies I know.  I'm in loooove.


In case anyone ever wonders if Jack is neglected while I'm making Rory pose for her pictures... Um, yeah, he's good.



Big thanks to Jen for the retro kitchen plaid fabric!  Hey Jen, did you recognize the yellow/diamond bias tape on the previous post?  You're the best, Fabric Fairy!

Hi, Emily's-friend-Jen! You'll love this pattern.  Here is a full picture of Rory wearing one of her dresses, so that you can see the length on her.  I'd call it knee-length.

Oh my peas I love this pattern, and the red and black fabric! Audrey has more size 3 dresses than she can wear this year because I went a little over board. Oops. But next year I'm going to have to order her some size 4's from you. And in some kind of black and red. I love both and they don't make nearly enough little girl clothes in either.

I'll keep an eye out for black and red fabric, Casey! I'd love to make Audrey a dress!

My friend and your cousin, Mrs. EMK, sent me to see this dress. Very cute! I love the square neck, the ruffle sleeves, the pleat. I even have that same brown circle fabric in my stash. :) And today Brynnberlee Designs was having a sale, so I bought this pattern! One question for you - how is the length on Rory?

Welcome, Jen! I posted a pic for you to see the full-length dress. (And high-five for good fabric taste!)

Thanks for the picture. The dress looks short in the pattern pictures, so I was just curious of the length when actually on. I'm in the middle of making one for a birthday gift!
