The Louisa Dress Pattern Tour (and giveaway!)

I am so excited to be a part of the Louisa Dress pattern tour!
Marte of Compagnie M. has some of the cutest and most original sewing patterns in the PDF world and her newly released Louisa Dress is no exception.

The Louisa Dress was just released and can be purchased HERE.  The pattern is sized 1 year up to 10 year, so I will get tons of use out of it!  
Marte is generously offering 10% off the Louisa Dress pattern with the code Louisa10off. (discount ends December 7th).
You can also purchase the Louisa and the Mara Blouse together for only 12 euro (not sure what that works out to in American dollars;).
This dress is perfect for Ainsley because of the extra large pocket front.   It will certainly keep her busy hands occupied.
The 3/4 length sleeves are perfect for this time of year!
Next time I make this dress, I might try sleeveless and layer it with a long sleeve tee.  I think that would also be super cute.
The back is done with an invisible zipper and I LOVE how professional it looks, don’t you?
Ainsley LOVES it!
Just a funny tidbit…
During the photoshoot, Ainsley started talking about her “unicorn friend”, and I asked her how big this unicorn was. 
She said “Oh, about this tall.”
Then, I told her that I used to have a unicorn friend when I was 4 years old, but mine was as big as the house!

This was her reaction:)
Thanks SO much for having me Marte!   This dress is just absolutely adorable and I can’t wait to make more.

    Ahhh! Hoping I can win this pattern and add it to my collection of unused PDFs. Hehehe. Maybe my goal for next year should be to sew all the patterns I have that are collecting dust… Your dress is beautiful, but what does the back look like? Please tell me the bottom half is floral! I want to wear it!

      HI Tasha, you have 3 back options: a plain one, an option with the bottom half in flora and a last one with some inserts. That’s the most special option. Just have a look at my blog to see them all. M
