I few months back Olbelthe patterns had a buy one get on free sale and I just couldn't resist. I've always loved to see what Dawn sews for her daughter and couldn't wait to try a few more of her patterns. You've already seen the dress version of the Mia Top that I made for Emily's preschool graduation, if you haven't just look up at the top of the blog, but I also got Heidi's Dirndl and needed to give it a go. I've been doing a lot of sewing for myself lately and Emily was upset that in her words, "you used to make me things all the time and then you just stopped." Now I get that she is pretty spoiled when it comes to ward-robing but she is also starting to get a little old for the younger print fabrics so I went ahead and made her a dress.
Final conclusion. I like the final product and may use the pattern again but I think I will be giving this brand a pass in the future. I just like what I like I guess. I want to participate in Frances and Suzanne's site so I guess I will be trying some other indy brands in the future which should be fun. I love the idea of supporting independent businesses but I'm also pretty picky about the product.
