A few weeks ago I was asked to be a pattern tester for a new indie pattern company that Abby was starting called Blue Ginger Doll. I received a lovely big package in the post a few weeks later that turned out to be the pattern for Abby’s first dress, the Billie Jean.

It was a truly lovely pattern to work with. I made version 2 of the dress but made the skirt less full. My version is made from a light cotton black and white polka dot fabric and is lined in the same fabric.

If you would like to read a little more about the dress and the pattern I’ve written a bit more on my blog :)

So pretty! I’m always on the lookout for new indie pattern designers, too!
