Perfect Pattern Parcel #2

I am not an affiliate of Perfect Pattern Parcel, but I received these patterns for this tour.  All opinions are mine.  Also PPP is awesome.

Perfect Pattern Parcel

I am super excited to a part of Perfect Pattern Parcel #2.  If you haven't heard of Perfect Pattern Parcel, here's a quick description in their own words:

Put together two entrepreneurial makers driven by their internal voices and one self-taught hacker driven by data analytics , and Perfect Pattern Parcel was born. We are passionate about supporting independent designers in their craft and fostering a community of makers to grow. Our mission is to offer high-quality pdf sewing patterns written by indie designers while supporting children's education.

But the best part about PPP?  They donate funds raised from each sale to Donors Choose which is an organization that matches up the needs of teachers and their students for specific projects with willing donors. 

Perfect Pattern Parcel #2

Parcel #2 two contains 5 patterns which can be mixed and matched in enough ways to completely outfit your little girl for spring.  Just look at this list of patterns:

Hanami Top or Dress by Straight Grain
Hosh Pants by LoubeeClothing
Celestial Tee by Figgy’s
September Tunic & Dress by Too Sweets Patterns
Caroline Party Dress by Mouse House Creations

With this parcel if you choose to pay at least $24 you will automatically receive this BONUS pattern:
Prefontaine Shorts by Made With Moxie

Now you all know I'm obsessed with Hosh Pants.  Just take a look here, here, and here.  But Sarah has extended the sizing to go up to 6 so I'll make plenty more before Bean is too big for Hosh.

When I received the patterns I jumped at the chance to make a Caroline Party Dress for Bean.  It's such an adorable classic shape and I knew a Mouse House Creations pattern would have excellent attention to detail so I couldn't wait to sew with it.  I love a well done tutorial and this does not disappoint. 

I made the simple neckline dress with a full bodice lining and underskirt.  If I have Bean wear this one for her birthday, then I'll add a bunch of tulle to make it poof a bit more.  If you haven't sewn with tulle before, don't worry because the pattern does a great job of explaining how to add tulle to the underskirt.  I made it in size 4T because at the rate Bean is growing she would have outgrown a 3T by the time her birthday came around in may.  It fits great with a little extra room in the bodice now so it'll be perfect this summer.

Perfect Pattern Parcel #2

I can't wait to sew more of the patterns from the parcel.  In the meantime, Bean and I have been having fun coloring in the super adorable paper dolls made in honor of the sale.  The free printable is a great way to get your kids excited about mixing and matching the PPP patterns.

Grab your parcel soon as the sale will be over in less than two weeks.  Don't forget to stop by the other ladies on the Perfect Pattern Parcel tour today: Lexi Made and sewVery.

    Thanks for sewing with us, Ajaire! That dress looks so awesome on Bean. I love the multi colored polka dots. I wish adults could still wear such fun dresses without looking like a nutter. ;)

  4. That fabric is perfect for a party dress! Nice job!

  5. Sara, I've used the polka dots on her other two birthday dresses too ;)

  6. Thanks Jill! I bought those polka dots ages ago and I still have a tiny bit left to use on yet another project :)

  7. When I saw your sneak peek the other day, I figured it was a birthday dress since you've used that before!

    I love that they donate to DonorsChoose!!!

  8. The dress is adorable! I love the look of the polka dot bodice, solid skirt, and striped bias hem.:)
