Heidi & Finn Pattern Review

Along with a million other things, I found this adorable pattern on Pinterest and I thought how could I possibly pass it up?!? It's a PDF pattern by Heidi & Finn for only $6! 
The following is my review on how it went.
Chic Cocktail Swing Coat pattern and tutorial 12M-6T holiday jacket PDF

The pattern says that it is for sizes 12m-6T which was perfect since my daughter is nearly 16 months. I made the 12-2T size. The other sizes are 3T-4T and 5T-6T. 
To start you print out the pattern onto 15 sheets of 8.5x11 paper and tape them together. This went really well because they make it very easy to see what goes's like a big puzzle :)
Once you've have it all taped you can cut out the size you will be working with. I like that you can reprint if you ever want to make it in a bigger or smaller size rather than having to use tracing paper and the wheely thing-a-ma-bob. From there the directions were pretty straight forward. I do recall a few parts where I had to assume somethings, mainly which direction my fabric should be like right side up or down. But it's pretty easy to know what is right. I did change how I completed the tie to something that I thought was easier but it still looks the same. 
All in all it took me about 2 1/2-3 hours but I know it will go much faster the second time around. The one bummer that I found though is that the 12m-2T size is way too big for my little girl who is considered average. So this will be a coat for next year instead...just don't want to have to wait until then! It's just too cute!
In summation, (clichè term teachers never want you to use in college so I'll happily use it here ;) I give this pattern an A+ for it's easy to follow instructions, it's wonderfully low price, and it's adorableness!

Here's what mine looks like...I just love stripes!

Let me know if you make one!
Happy Crafting!

High-Waisted Sash Skirt {Tutorial}

Ok so I'm officially on a skirt kick as this is my third one in 2 weeks. With spring in the air I just can't help but want to live in spring things! This diy skirt is similar to the other one I did but this one has a sash and is fuller...which I think is way fun! To purchase this exact fabric go to my etsy shop! If you're not up for making it you're in luck! I now sell it on my etsy shop too! You should also check it out on my friend over at Stylish Petite!

Sweet as a Berry Little Girl Dress {tutorial}

With Valentine's day lurking around the corner it's only natural for a blogger like myself to begin thinking of cute ways to incorporate the holiday. When I came across this strawberry fabric I fell in love with it's sweetness and decided that I would make my daughter a Valentine's day inspired dress. You may remember my Valentine's day inspired onesie from last year...Now if only my daughter would get up and walk in it instead of scoot around on her booty getting the beautiful fabric all dirty! Sigh...someday!
