friday dress pdf patterns sewing for cool kids

You probably heard by now that the Friday Dress has been released. You can read more about it HERE and it's finally available in our SHOP.

P.S. you might want to take advantage of the 20% off coupon  (BLOCKPARTY) that is still going on until Sunday dec 11th for the Sewing After Block Party!).

Today I wanted to share all the amazing versions the creative and talented ladies created during the testing phase. I am always amazed at all the work and help I get from my testers. It's not always easy to sew something when it's not perfect and has potential errors here and there. But they ask all the right questions and together we work to make the best pattern we know how. 

Have a look and maybe this will inspire you to make your own Friday Dress, which we would love to see, so tag it with #isewfridaydresses and #petitapetitpatterns on Instagram.

Let's start with one of Petit a Petit's superstar cover girls, shall we? Ines' daughter looks so sweet in her floral Friday Dress above. I also love this version she made in knit! I need to make one now, too. She is one talented pattern hacker!

Jane has two fun-loving children, and she always does such great activities with them (you can read about some of them on the Petit a Petit blog, too)! She made her daughter a bright and sunny dress for the Sewing Block Party in a fine whale corduroy.

Mimi's adorable daughter is a superstar in our eyes. She was another one of our cover girls for the Loveralls pattern, and look at how irresistible she is in this Friday Dress!
