Pattern Review - Little Vicki by Izzy & Ivy Designs

Izzy & Ivy Designs has provided some of my favorite little girl sewing patterns for years now. Their fresh, unique and easy to sew styles set them apart and I'm always delighted with the outcome of sewing with their patterns. In addition to creating garments my girls love to wear, I also learn a lot of different sewing techniques from their patterns. I always appreciate that!
My latest Izzy & Ivy pattern to sew was the Little Vicki dress.
This bright & cheery dress was made to pair with the matching Mae doll I shared earlier this week as a contribution for the upcoming Love Without Boundaries Art Auction.

The pleating on the front gives it such a crisp, tailored finish. While I did have to read the pleating instructions through a couple of times before getting it just right.....this isn't uncommon for me, I'm very much a hands-on visual learner.....this is probably my favorite part of the finished dress! 

The hem band and rounded collar add just the right touches and allow for a complimentary fabric to be used in the dress also. The pattern also includes instructions for making the dress without the collar if preferred. 
 The back offers a button closure....another nice finishing touch!

The pattern has a size range for girls 1-6, and I can't wait to make one for my little sweetie!
The pattern also has a very sweet story behind it. It was designed and name for the designer's mother. :)

So, if you're looking for the perfect little dress for that spring and summer wardrobe, I highly recommend the Little Vicki!
Happy Sewing!
