Cottage Mama Ruby Dress pattern review and giveaway!

***This giveaway is now closed. See the winner below!***

My good pal Lindsay over at The Cottage Home has just come out with a new batch of gorgeous sewing patterns! When she asked me to be a part of her sewing tour, of course I said yes! Then I had to choose. :} The ruffles had me at hello on the Ruby Ruffle dress, even though just the name alone almost got me on the Charlotte Apron dress! ;)

Her patterns are always fabulous-very well written and I always end up with well constructed clothing when I sew with them. I love that she adds a much loved recipe of hers with each pattern-such a thoughtful and nice touch!

For Sadie’s Ruby Ruffle dress, I used  Lizzy House Outfoxed, Pearl Bracelet Light Orange from my sponsor, Fabric Worm, and the middle panel is from who knows where? Sorry! The fit was great, I think I cut out a 3T, and it should fit Sadie for awhile, since she only grows up! (and even then only once in awhile)

Check out the rest of the amazing outfits that are sure to be shown off in this blog tour! (and more chances to win her other patterns!)

Week 1: 
Stef from Girl. Inspired (Charlotte Pattern)
Jessica from Me Sew Crazy (Ruby Pattern)
Christina from 2LittleHooligans (Run Around Pattern)
Jess from Craftiness is not Optional (Ruby Pattern)

Week 2:
Maureen from Maureen Cracknell Handmade (Charlotte Pattern)
Liz and Elizabeth from Simple Simon (Run Around Pattern)

Week 3:
Shannon from Luvinthemommyhood (Ruby Pattern)

Susan from Living with Punks (Ruby Pattern)

So how would you like a shot at winning yourself a copy of the Ruby Ruffle pattern? Yeah, I thought so!

 Here’s how to enter: (2 chances!)

1. Visit www.thecottagemama.com and pick our your favorite pattern (and good luck with that! lol), then come back and leave a comment telling me your fav!

2. “Like” her Facebook page and then come back and leave a comment telling me you did so. (Must comment here for entry to count!)

 Please leave an email address with each of your comments!

  Giveaway open to US residents only, and she will be shipping out patterns to all the winners at the end of the blog tour, FYI.

I’ll choose a winner Sunday evening, the 17th.

 Good luck!
