Miss Mary:: View A



Isn't she lovely?!
 Oh, I'm so happy with her!


 Little Miss Mary is a quick and easy sew too! I think I've said this before, but I really mean it this time, I think she's my favorite!


Just you wait until you see View B....I think our older maidens will really like it. Miss Mary will have a size range of 6 mo-4 and 5-12 yrs. Let me know what you think! It's now or never, give us some feedback, I promise I always listen!

I love this! It is so simple, yet so feminine...a classic look with a bit of a twist. I love the bow and the fact that it would be so easy to adjust the skirt to several different lengths. My girls always love your patterns, but this one is really up their alley as far as style goes. Great job! Now, if I can just get my sewing machine fixed before you get this pattern out so I can be ready to make a bunch of them for my 3 girls! :)

Hi! I just found your website while looking for heirloom dress patterns. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Miss Mary! Very classic and can be dressy or casual, based upon the fabric. I have three girls; 4, 7 and 10 and this style will accomodate all three. Any idea when this will be out?

Rebecca said...

I love that neckline - this is perfect for my oldest, much more "grown up" than most of my patterns. I bet it would look great in a knit fabric too!

Amy said...

It's adorable, I want one for me ;)

Jean said...

I love it and want to sew it for my 6yo. Can't wait to see a version for older girls, as my 9yo has grown out of every dress she owns (we need to go shopping before Sunday!).

Stella said...

I love it! You said March? Please let it be before March 19th. It would be one very sweet bday dress for my little Miss. No pressure or anything. ;)

I really like this one! Just looking at it makes me want to start picking out fabric!

Myra said...

Very cute and retro-ish. Love it. If you want another tester, let me know.

indywriter said...

I love a cross-over top. It's a simple detail, but it really sets Miss Mary apart from most other patterns.

I could picture this personalized with either an apron or pockets without it looking too busy.

Kim H. said...

That is just adorable! My friend Jenn (JLI) told me about you and it seems we have a lot in common - so I'm glad to be looking at your blog! I hope that you're having a wonderful day!

Jody said...

Beautiful!

The Zoo Keeper-ette said...

Oooouuuuu- I love Love LOVE Miss Mary!! It's so simple and just perfect! I cannot wait til I can get my hands on the pattern :) And I think I may have to make it in red too :) Very happy feeling to it :) When will it be in the shop???? Keep us posted :) Thanks!

Jan said...

This is darling. I think adults will, would, love it, too.

Goosegirl said...

I love Miss Mary! I love cross over bodices because they have an Asian feel. Very pretty.

LadySnow said...

I absolutely love it. And I love it would be in sizes for both of my daughters. :-)

Feather Webb said...

Ohh...I love it! Can't wait until it is available.

Lyneya said...

It's beautiful!

Misty said...

I LOVE it!!! I have a petite little girl that is almost 8 (wears a size 6), and I have another baby girl due at any time. Good excuse for me to buy both size ranges! My two little boys (ages 2 and 5) get to dress alike every once in awhile. My daughter has long wished for a sister that she could wear matching clothes with. I like the idea of an older version and little sis version. Can't wait to see the other "view."

Josette said...

I would love to try it for my miss mary. She is 1. IS it liable to fall off the shoulders though?

Beach Mama said...

I got to have this pattern for my girls!!!! Could you use cotton knit for this? That's all one of mine will wear. I do love this pattern!

Hayes said...

IT IS PERFECT!!!!! I cannot WAIT to try this out. It is fabulous!!!

Sarah AH said...

Oh my goodness!
I have been looking for a perfect cross over dress for a long time. There have been several I have thought *might* work. But, this is perfect! I love the sleeve. The neckline is beautiful. I love where the tie is and the gathering is just adorable.

I will be here bright and early to buy it the day you release it ;)

.... and I'd love to be considered for a tester as well. I have a 6 month old, a 3 yr old and a 9 yr old.

DangitAnge said...

I absolutely LOVE it! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! It may very well bump Miss Lily from the top of my favorites list. Do you need testers?? :D Please!

Anonymous said...

I love it!!!! Wow, you've got to quick or I'll be broke.

On the negative side, I don't like the size range-my dd's wear a 4 and 6, respectively which means I'd have to purchase 2 for the matchy.

Can't wait to see view B.

Natalie said...

Ooooh this looks adorable, another one to add to my list - I have the miss Lily and think it is my favourite so far.

Mama Lusco said...

I love the V-neck and little sash-waist! So cute and I can't wait for the pattern :)

Lex and Lilly's Mom said...

I love this dress! the simplicity is so graceful and perfect for little girls! I can't wait to get this and make on for my little girl! You are so talented.

Megan said...

Sam, you have outdone yourself. I think this is my favorite of yours!

KarenH said...

Oh my goodness, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this little dress! I can't wait to see view B and I'm really excited about the size range. :)

Jeannine said...

Love it. Perfect combination dress. Definitely girly and feminine and yet I can imagine it as a top too with a pair of leggings. I cannot wait to add this one to my collection. Great work.

*****************

xoxo,
Sam

I *adore* this style of dress, so happy to see you incorporated it into your pattern! Can't wait till it's available.

Thanks for all your creativity!

Des said...

I think this is darling - and I'm so glad to see it will go up to at least a size 12!! Great for those of us with slightly older little girlies. :)

Leah (mummy made it) said...

yes indeed it does look cute, and simple, wrap around maybe without any zips, can't wait!

Karen said...

Oh my goodness, Samantha! You've outdone yourself again! I can't wait to get my hands on this beauty!!!

Alison said...

I absolutely love it! My only request is to include instructions to make it long sleeved as well!
Alison

Wendy said...

It's so beautiful, I can't wait to try it!

Kimberly said...

I love it, a darling little wrap around! I have a wrap around pattern that goes either way, front or back, which is fun.

Natalie said...

It is adorable!! I love that the size range goes up so high too! My only concern would be if the neckline cut too low, but it is a darling dress!

Tricia said...

Beautiful! What I love most is that it is modest! I went dress shopping for DD(6) and did not buy any dresses because they were too grown up looking. She is 6 and I want her to dress that way. Not like a 6 year old Miley Cyrus!

Kim said...

*GASP!* It's precious!

Cherishing My Days said...

Oh! Very cute!! I have 3 girls in the 5-12 size range, so I can't wait to make this one!

Vintage Rose said...

I love this dress. I will definately be ordering the pattern.
Does it come in my size? Lol!
You are very clever Samantha.
Take care & God bless
Melissa

cjoy said...

so lovely! i feel myself beginning to covet.... ;)

Tecia said...

This is so beautiful. I will be purchasing this as soon as it's available! I love that it has such a wide range of sizes.

Team Manager said...

LOVE it! My girls will love it, too! You do beautiful work!

kathleen said...

Yes!! I still need to order my miss alice. I thank you so much for doing the bigger girl sizes. I do just love this, love the cross over front! Thanks Samatha

mandi said...

love it! ack! is it reversible?!? just perfect!

Hayes said...

Sam, my emails to youare bouncing back. Thinks they are SPAM! Can you unblock me, pretty please.
Hayes

Mika said...

It looks great Sam! Are you going to be including various options for the sleeves? I have a similar pattern that has those sleeves as well, and I get customers complaining about the cap sleeve not fitting well-so I'm hoping you're going to include an option for maybe set in sleeves???? When you're ready for testers let me know, you know I'm game!

Beth said...

love it! The bow at the side is the perfect little touch!

Christine said...

I think it is wonderful. And I love an older age range. My daughter is 7 and loves my sewing still but sometimes its hard to find great patterns. This looks to be a great one!

Sabrina said...

love this dress! adorable!

ellen said...

I want to make one in MY size! It's adorable.

Anonymous said...

I really like this for my 8 year old. I like that the sleeves are part of the bodice (no separate sleeves to sew in!) And I love it in your red fabric, my favorite color!

vickim said...

i love it, i cannot wait until march to buy it.

Amy said...

I wish it came in adult sizes, too!

Stacie said...

LOVE IT!!!!

Sarah said...

I Love it!! And from my 3 year old who is sitting in my lap, she says she loves it too and that it's beautiful!

momto2lilgrls said...

oh that is so cute. I'd love to get that pattern for my girls

melody said...

Want to make one of these for my little girl, oh, so very much!

Maggie said...

So cute! Love your work! New Fan!

Leslie said...

this dress is so adorable...i know my daughter would love the miss mary dress and it looks like something that i probably could make.
