5 and 10 designs free sleeve pattern (and an upcoming sale!)

5 and 10 designs polka dot dress with sleeves  craftiness is not optional

there are exciting things happening over on 5 and 10 Designs this week! There is a new FREE sleeve pattern that is designed to work with our e-book. YAY! The pattern comes in short, 3/4 length, and long sleeves.  So of course I had to whip up the basic dress from the e-book for Ava’s Christmas dress! I used the 3/4 length sleeve and 18 mo size…in hindsight I probably should have gone up a size….I am so not used to having chubby babies that wear a size larger than their age! lol. I love it, don’t get me wrong. 😉

5 and 10 designs with 34 sleeve  craftiness is not optional

I meant to add the peter pan collar option that we have, but totally spaced and it was all sewn together when I finally remembered. So I added the ribbon  sash and called it good. 😉 (ribbon and fabric from Joanns-buttons from my pal Katie when she used to make them)
