Busy Lizzy pattern September 10, 2014 – Posted in: Pattern
Several months ago, the girls at Frances Suzanne invited me to participate in the September Showcase–a 2 week long showcase of rising indie pattern designers with 5 or fewer children’s patterns. I was honored, to say the least. And sooo excited to see the Busy Lizzy dresses sewn by the bloggers who signed up.
They revealed their creations today and I’m just giddy!
Stacey at From-a-Box made FOUR versions–one for each season! So, so, so impressed with her attention to detail and all the creative ways she made up the pattern! I’m totally dying over the rick rack and piping details!
Ana Sofia from S is for Sewing made the top version of the pattern. Her honeycomb smocking is the perfect little flip to the pattern. Such a lovely top!
And lastly, Marnae from The Powell Clan, who upcycled a vintage skirt into a gorgeous pleated dress for her beautiful little girl. I love the way she opened up the back into more of a keyhole shape. I’m going to have to try that for myself!
But wait, THERE’S MORE!
All of my patterns are 25% off in my etsy shop to celebrate this awesome honor! Use the code SHOWCASE to save until Sept 20th!!
You can also enter this incredible giveaway!! I’ll refund any purchased patterns to the winner, so don’t hesitate to buy now and still enter. 🙂

My Busy Lizzy pattern is definitely one of my personal favorites. I’ve sewn it for my own girls a bunch!
Ella wore it for her second birthday party!
Chloe loves the short sleeve top and wore it weekly until it got too cold and she outgrew this version. It was also what she wore on the first day of Preschool!
I made the long sleeve tunic version for Sofia and she wore it to school last Halloween.
I also made Ella a version to wear to my cousin’s wedding this summer. (I forgot to take a picture of them all dressed up at the beginning of the day, and this was at the end of the reception at about 11 pm. Hair no longer looked cute.)
I also found myself on the receiving end of a surprise pattern tour earlier this year and I gushed all over the pictures. These are the amazing versions of the Busy Lizzy my sweet blogging friends sewed up.
And there are a slew of other amazing versions made up by pattern reviewers, testers, and friends. So gorgeous, aren’t they?
Have I convinced you yet that you can’t live without this pattern? There’s so many different ways to make it, and the options stretch as far as your imagination! So hop on over to my etsy shop and grab it while it’s on sale for this limited time! The code is SHOWCASE and it’s good for 25% off ALL my patterns! YAY!!
