Mama Stellato pattern review and sale!

Ok, cute baby alert. May cause excessive nom nomming of cheekies. (well, just for me actually, you can’t have her cheekies)ย 
This sweet little dress doesn’t hurt, eh? I whipped it up the other day…(I say that so nonchalantly but it really was that easy!)…using my sponsor Mama Stellato’s Gracie Dress pattern. It was an easy pattern to follow-a breeze to put together-(like, two spots to tape together) and really adorable when finished.
And hello? Adorable button closure!ย  (note: I made my closurey thing too long…my bad, still cute.) The button is from my awesome sponsor, Incomparable Buttons and the fabric is from the Garden line by Hokkoh. I got it on Sew Mama Sew originally but it looks like they’re out. It’s fantastic fabric-the print is great. I paired it with a red polka dot from Joann’s.
At first I didn’t add the pocket but it needed something so I made one really quickly-hurrying to get it sewn on before Charlotte started cussing me out and hollering from her crib after nap time. (I made it, just in case you’re wondering)
I cut out the 12-18 month size, which is a bit large (of course, she’s barely 12 months!) but she’s soo wearing it for family pics. Now, gotta figure out the rest of our outfits.
And lookey loo at who’s standing on her own!

Some of my fav patterns of hers are below:

The Acadia tee

  26. ahhh, curse my backed up google reader, I just barely missed the sale. And you, keeping those cheekies to yourself for your own selfish nomnomnoms! Olivia’s cheekies are slimming down, soon all I shall have left to nomnom are her chubby thighs. That seems to be the only place she’s not slimming down.

  27. Very cute patterns! My fave is the Gracie!!
