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.
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.

Our mission is to offer high-quality pdf sewing patterns written by indie designers while supporting children's education.
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:

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.
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.
