Sweetheart Dungarees + Giveaway!



One of my best friends just had a baby...an adorable and fashionable little girl.  Already at less than a month old, she has more friends on Facebook than most adults and has already rocked leg warmers. I can't wait until she is old enough for me to teach her to sew!

I knew I wanted to sew up a cute vintage-inspired outfit for her.  I was having these thoughts when the lovely Katie from 'Little Dress Kits' contacted me about an amazing business she has that makes sewing for little ones so easy!

I think her business is brilliant.  She puts together super easy to sew patterns for little clothes and gives you everything you need in a sewing kit --from the pattern, to the fabric and matching thread to the cute notions...

Perhaps the most brilliant thing is that the Little Dress Kits are made for people with all levels of sewing experience, including absolute beginners.  No sewing experience necessary for their beginner kits.  She walks you through every step in the detailed instructions.  Plus, there is no guesswork or confusing notations on the pattern pieces.  AND GET THIS....the pattern pieces are printed on sticky paper.  You just peel them off the paper and stick them directly onto the fabric.  No pins necessary!!  Brilliant.  And it worked like a charm.  Plus, the little outfits are made from easy to use fabrics like corduroy and gingham (both have up and down lines on the fabric already--making it easy to cut out).

And look how adorable these dungarees are....and the adorable little pocket!  Arrrrggggg...too cute!  They are also half lined--with the gingham peaking out at the neck...


I love innovative sewing businesses and will definitely be buying her kits in the future.  I really like having everything I need and not having to decide on fabric or notions!












If you missed the giveaway at So Zo's blog, here's another chance!  Katie is so wonderful and has agreed to give away one of her Little Dress Kits.  Just visit her website and leave a comment below with your choice of sewing kit by Saturday the 6th of July.  This giveaway is open to readers everywhere.  Good luck and thank you Katie for the inspiring business and hosting a giveaway!

  8. I loved sewing for my little children (I have five) because there was no fitting involved. Everything went together quickly and I could get things done in one day. These kits look wonderful.

  10. I'd love to win one of these! One of my friends has recently given birth and I'm ashamed to say I didn't make it in time to make her a maternity dress. So I want to surprise her with some cute baby clothes instead.
    The Car Dungarees are just the cutest!
    Even though I dont want kids myself, the thought of making teeny tiny clothes for little ones sounds so much fun! You can go ALL OUT with the twee factor. Yesss

  12. I really like the sweetheart dungarees - but I've run out of girls to sew for! That said the car dungarees are a really lovely boy alternative, and handily have a baby nephew ready and waiting.

  13. Wow, how lovely! My sister-in-law is having a baby-boy this month, so this would be a perfect gift! I mean, the Tractor dungarees kit that I could sew. I'd be so happy if I won! Thanks for the opportunity!
