The Norah Dress

 
Hey y’all! Today I’m part of the Norah Dress Pattern tour on Welcome to the Mouse House!  Can ya stand the excitement over there?!??

I have a confession: I’m totally smitten with sherpa fabric right now. I bought 2 yards of it a while back, and I’ve used it on pretty much every project since!  Do you know how much 2 yards of sherpa is?!  A LOT, that’s how much.

Now on to the pattern: I absolutely love it! Going by measurements Ellie should wear a 2t, but I had a feeling I was really going to love this piece so I made it a 3t so she can wear it again next year!

***PRO TIP*** I always make sleeves and pants legs about 2 inches longer than the pattern suggests.  Then I hem it TWICE.  When it gets too short I pick the seam on the outer hem and BOOM, I’ve just added 2 inches to it AND it’s already hemmed!  Now you know my little secret 😉

The yummy charcoal chambray is from Michael Levine, the sherpa is from Joann Fabrics, and the leather for the collar cinch is from Leather Hide Store.
