Amy of Brownie Goose did it once again with a design that is classy and timeless.
Meet Miss Cricket
I knew when I saw the pattern that I had to make two- one for each of my gals. I chose to make it in a flannel as it is snuggly and warm this time of year. And when I found this adorable Christmas print in two colorways I knew I had to have it.. I am not all about match-matchy but I do love coordinating prints and colors. So here we go… the girls loved them. We put on our boots and took a walk around our favorite spot on our greenway. SHHHH don’t tell but it was a gorgeous 70 degrees this December day in flannel! It is NC you never know if you need gloves or sunscreen this time of year!
The pattern has many helpful parts that we all look for:
a large size range 6-12months-12
quick print guide
sizing chart/finished measurements
interfacing for beautiful construction with thorough direction
perfectly computer drafted pattern pieces that line up easily
The boat neck, keyhole button closure, bishop sleeves, and gorgeous curved hemline give it that timeless, classy look. It is recommended to use a voile, rayon challis or knit for the true drape of the garment. The sleeves are something special and the clear direction on how to gather and attach to create this look are very specific. The interfacing used on the hem and neckline help everything lay perfectly and hold up over time. This dress is a quick sew with a gorgeous finished product. Wait til you see what all the other testers did with theirs..
Of course, you know the pictures, directions and humor are the reasons we all love BG patterns and this one is no different. Cricket is definitely one you need in your collection. I know I will cut into some of my gorgeous out of print “little folks” voile for my next tunic version!
My girls love to be all the same.. see the love… well for today anyway!
Their reaction to the dress “it is so comfy, can we wear it everyday?” SURE girls, WHY not?
