Nanoo Designs Dodie Dress Pattern Give-a-way

Have you guys seen the newest dress pattern by Nanoo Designs?



It's so, so cute and I was lucky enough to be a tester for it!
The Dodie Dress pattern is for sale in Nanette's etsy shop, but she has agreed to give one away on the blog!

The Dodie pattern uses very little fabric for this adorable little summer dress!




I used some adorable Micheal Miller mermaid fabric from my Mom's stash. It's called 'Sea Beauties' if you want to search for it.



The original pattern I tested was a bit short, so the final pattern has more length.
I fixed that by adding a sweet ruffle to the bottom.



I really like it with the ruffle anyways...



and so does Boos.



I think this is one of her favorite dresses I've made this summer.



It was really fun to play around with the trims and buttons on the bodice.



I tried a bunch of different combinations before I decided on this one. Luckily Hobby Lobby had all their trims 50% off and JoAnn's had all the buttons 1/2 off!



I couldn't be happier about how this little dress turned out and I think you guys will love the pattern, too.

It makes me so happy to be able to share awesome patterns with ya'll!
Thank you so much to Nanette for sponsoring the give-a-way!
Stop by her facebook page, 'like' her, and say thank you for the give-a-way!

Then make sure and leave a comment. I will randomly pick a winner next week.
Good luck everyone!
