caroline party dress & hosh pants - perfect pattern parcel

When I received an email a few weeks ago asking if I would want to work with the Perfect Pattern Parcel #2, of course I said yes!  Parcel #2 includes sewing patterns for a little girl's spring wardrobe.  The patterns included are:

 
So far I have used two of the patterns with plans to sew up more.
This is the Caroline Party Dress.  I mixed and matched some fabric I had on hand to come up with this.

It was my first time sewing an invisible zipper into clothing but the instructions were clear
and I had no problem installing it.

A great twirling dress!

While this pattern parcel does state it is for a "girl's wardrobe", my son was in need of some pants so I sewed some Hosh pants for him. I love the slim fit of these pants and the flat front. These were made using yarn-dyed linen. Paired with a onesie, he now has a new spring outfit!
