I know many of you have been dropping hints that you would like to see Sprout in the bigger size range. Well, the wait is over - now you can get sewing some winter dresses for your bigger girls!
Big Sprout caters for girls from 6-10 years. And to be honest, I think I prefer it on older girls than younger ones. It looks very chic with some tights and a pair of boots. Check out Karen - my pattern tester's - daughter below. Isn't she gorgeous! Hmmm...makes me think some Sprout dresses for the Mumma's might not go astray...what do you reckon?
Sprout is a dress designed for winter...fully lined with flannelette, snug side pockets and a hood. However, if you wanted to line it with a lovely cotton voile or another layer of cotton fabric, it would work just as well for a light weight dress too.
Sprout is a favourite in our home - both for Lil and myself. She likes it because it is a dress (with a hood!) and I like it because when we go out in the icy cold 12 degree days we have been having this week I know that she is still toasty and warm.
Just like all of my "upsized" patterns, LITTLE Sprout caters for sizes 6 months-5 years. BIG Sprout is exactly the same design, only the size range for this pattern is 6-10 years.
You can find out fabric requirements for Big Sprout on my website. If you have a store and want to stock this or any other Make It Perfect pattern, contact Creative Abundance to place an order.
If you would like to purchase a copy of Big Sprout for yourself, they should be popping up in retail stores very soon. Ask your favourite store to get one in for you!
