This is Juliette (the dress) on Jade (the girl) I loved making this dress from Made for Mermaids’ pattern, and Jade’s design. We went shopping together so she could pick out the fabric, and it’s just perfect!

Of course, maxi length circle skirt for this size is a lot of fabric, and a lot of ruffles, but really this pattern is so simple, and basic. I think anyone with a little patience can do it 😉

We had a really quick mini photo shoot. I love the colors of the graffiti, and Jade’s a pro in front of the camera…her mom’s a photographer!

Go check out the pattern here, and check out the rest of our photos below…

This sweet dress is the third release in the Dreamy Collection from Made for Mermaids. This is the simple version, and I think it’s still stunning! It’s also an incredibly quick sew. I started and finished one after the kids went to bed one night, and that’s saying a lot, because there’s usually not much time between their bedtime and mine 🙂 Also, I found this tulle on sale for $1.33/yard last week. Regularly $9.99. I’ll take it.

This is designed to mash with the Juliette pattern. You can mix and match the bodices with the skirts!

The bodice is perfection. Fit and coverage are just right. I’m so excited to share these pictures and this dress!

This dress is the second pattern in the Dreamy Collection from Made for Mermaids, and I’m in LOVE. I’ve had my eye out for a pattern like this after seeing beautiful versions floating around Pinterest, and finally I have one!!! I received a box full of cotton woven fabric scraps from a friend at church, and I dug into it right away 🙂 Both the dress and the top fabrics are courtesy of this box of fabric. I’m thankful for friends who pass on their stash 😛 The trim on the peach dress I’ve had for a while, something I picked up at a garage sale. That’s my favorite place to pick up fabric and notions, because…cheap!! I probably got 7 or 8 yards of that trim for a quarter.

I’ve been loving making and photographing these dreamy dresses because it’s a fun creative outlet for me. And my girls will have plenty to pick from for Easter service!

Grab Isla here, and the pattern for the Olivia Bloomers (paired with the top)  is available here.

I’m dead. This dress is AMAZING, and it’s not hard to make at all! Seriously, I was kind of stressed about the ruffles when I saw the picture, but it was so easy and straightforward to make. I thought I was going to have to trace out the placement of the ruffles on my fabric which would have made it tons harder, but the tutorial shows how to determine placement with a little ruler, and it was SO SIMPLE! Either way, it wouldn’t have mattered if it was incredibly hard, because the results are gorgeous! This is the first pattern in the Dreamy Collection from Made for Mermaids. I’m so excited about them. Check out the pattern here.
