Instructions for the Firecracker Dress sewing pattern were easy to follow and very thorough.  I never had any issues at understanding any of the steps to make this gorgeous dress.  You can tell each step of the process was well thought through.

Instead of making straps on my own, to save a little time, I used some sparkly ribbon for the straps.  When I first ordered the ribbon, I thought it was elastic ribbon.  I also ordered this ombre ribbon in a pink too.  However, I made a mistake in not checking for stretch and I made Baby Girl a headband with the ribbon.  Oops, I quickly found out it had no stretch.  I am glad I was able to find a new purpose for the ribbon.  The sparkly ribbon helps make the dress pop.

The ribbon is green and blue sparkly ombre which matches the fabric in her dress well.  You may remember the skirt fabric from my own dress I made myself in these Family Easter photos here and both fabric in a dress for her doll and herself here. I believe the skirt fabric is from Walmart and the green damask bodice fabric was from Joann Fabric.  I have had both in my stash for awhile, so I am not sure if they are still available.

Hi I'm Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers.  I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job.  With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help. With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop.  I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits.  I was so busy I couldn't keep up and had to seek out third party help. After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy.  There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create.  I started venturing out to more articles of clothing.  It has been a fun adventure. I am learning as I go.  I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go.  I don't think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!
