Whimsy Couture Strappy Dress - Pattern Review

I was chosen to review the Whimsy Couture Strappy Tops & Dresses pattern for my oldest daughter. This was my first online PDF pattern. I had shyed away from them in the past because I wasn't sure how they would print out or if it would be easy to understand. To be honest, I shy away from patterns all together. I always seem to skip steps or mess something up, but this pattern was super easy to follow and went together in an evening. That's even with it taking be an hour to figure out how to sew a button hole on my machine. I've never actually tried it before on this machine and I missplaced the instructions. AHH! lol Here are some pics of how it turned out.

And my husband thought I would never find a good use for this fun paisley print I bought on a whim.

Here's the back. The straps are ribbon. I love polka dots.

This one's an out take of Maddie being silly, but it's really my favorite. :)

You should head over to Whimsy Couture Blog and check out all of the awesome patterns there.
