out to lunch dress- pattern testing

Jessica at Happy Together is giving away three copies of her new pattern, the Out to Lunch Dress. I got to test it out for you!  I loved it.  It's another great pattern from Jessica.  Her patterns are easy enough for a newer sewist, but have such possibilty for enhancement and adding your own touch making them anything but basic.  My favorite thing probably is that she gives you a number of options within her patterns.  

Here is an example.  Here is the Out to Lunch dress with a gathered skirt:



Here it is with a circle skirt.


Two great skirt options.



This dress of Bee's was made as her Easter dress.  The skirt is repourpsed curtain/bed skirt material and the top is what I made Lou's Easter pants out of.  I added some buttons to make it a touch nautical since Lou's shirt had an anchor embroidered on. 


Some of the other testers added other details.  Go over the Happy Together to see them (after you finish looking at the pictures here of pretty gal).


And my cute guy,who had to make an appearance.


Bee picked out the fabric for the second dress.  She flipped when she was mermaids for little girls.  Last season we found a mermaid fabric but it was a little grown up. 



She can't wear tank tops of sleeveless tops to school, so I had to make sure that a shirt underneath would work out. 




Goodness, when did she get an attitude?  She's standing in front of our strawberries and raspberries, not a berry in sight  (although this past weekend, we did have our first 'harvest.'

She also can't wear these flip flops to school, but any chance out of school and they are on her feet.


For your chance to win a copy of this pattern, head on over to Happy Together. She also has them for sale in her etsy shop.
