Something to SPROUT about

Time for the big reveal, here is Toni's new Make It Perfect pattern, Sprout.


I currently have two girls who insist on wearing dresses all the time, so this little dress is perfect for our upcoming cooler weather.

Sprout is fully lined with flanellette so the girls will stay warm in winter but still be comfortable, and happy.


It has pockets on both sides for all those pieces of treasure you find while walking to the park, and a hood for keeping the wind at bay.

Not the greatest pics but my 'models' are having a rest so I will try to get modelled pics at a later date. I am 'recovering' from a big day yesterday of chatting and meeting an amazing group of friendly and entertaining women, some of whom are great dancers (if there is cheese or pina colada's involved) and will be back tomorrow to tell you more about the big Sew It Together weekend!

In the meantime - head over to Toni's to try and win your own copy of Sprout.

Yours looks great! I love the fabric too. I saw it in SL the other day and was soooo tempted to get some. There wasn't enough of the babushka fabric unfortunately (only 1.1m) to make something so I bought something else.
