The Sweetheart Dress Pattern Giveaway

 Recently this dress has been popping up all over the blogsphere.
And it is all thanks to our friend Shannon (from luvinthemommyhood) and her darling Sweetheart Dress Pattern with it’s signature heart cut out.
It’s such a fun little number especially for Valentine’s Day and I was so excited when Shannon asked us about giving it a whirl.  The pattern is downloadable, easy to read, comes in many different sizes (You can get all the details HERE.) and I printed them out the same day I got her email.
But then life happened…and it kept getting pushed aside.  Until the other night when I put my husband on dish duty and I finally got a chance to sew it up.  I couldn’t believe how quickly it went together!  I only had a few minor things left to do by the time my husband finished cleaning up the kitchen.
Now that’s my kind of project!  (Especially the part with the husband doing the dishes while I sew part…yea, I could used to that….)
 My favorite part of the dress is how nicely it lends itself to using coordinating fabrics.  (I’m kind of a sucker when it comes to using coordinating fabrics.)
See:
 Look how cute that heart looks when you can peek through to the coordinating lining.
I love this fabric that I used for the dress.  I’ve had it for awhile now.  I used once in a window display that showcased Romantic Era ink sketches and I’ve been saving it for just the right project ever since.
It came from Windham Fabrics and I’m sure they don’t still carry it but I wish they’d bring it back for a reunion tour.  I think it’s pretty cool and I’d totally get some more.
Anyways…enough about the fabric, let’s get down to business.  If you want to make a Sweetheart dress for your little one you can get the patternHERE or you can leave it up to chance and enter to win one because…
Shannon is giving away one of her patterns to one of our readers!
Nice huh?
Well, that’s Shannon.
(Really, she has gotten more than her fair share of random emails from us asking all sorts of crazy things and she always answers them…honestly, the woman deserves a medal.)
So, if you want to enter to win a Sweetheart Dress Pattern for your very own just leave us a comment…maybe a random question…or why you like Shannon to! :)
Good Luck and we’ll announce the winner on Monday!

  2. Wonderful work. Beautiful Dress! Shannon, how did you get started making dress patterns? Do you use former patterns for help or other items your children already own for sizing? I’d love to win this pattern!
    Sincerely, Kathryn

  3. Grace’s dress is gorgeous! Love the fabrics and twirly skirt. I’ve been eying this pattern since Shannon brought it out (LOVE her blog!!) Thanks for the chance to win.

  4. My daughter would love that heart cut-out detail, and it’s quite different from anything I’ve sewn, so I’m interested to try it!

  5. My daughter would love this, between the full skirt and the cut out back, her two favorite things she wouldn’t take it off!

  6. I love it – especially with the contrasting fabric! I would love to win a copy of the pattern – my three girls would look so cute in matching party dresses :)

  7. Shannon is so great! You feel like you’re really her friend when you read her blog and interact with her on FB. The dress is great and I’d love to make one for my daughter!

  8. It is amazing how this dress seems to flatter every girl I see in it. I would love a grown-up girls version…. If it’s available, let me know!
    My godchild would love this rocking dress…

  9. I love this pattern. I’m really new to sewing, but since I’m expecting my first wee one in a month I know I’ll be doing a lot more DIY sewing projects in the near future. Is this pattern beginner friendly?

  10. I’d really love to have this pattern. The heart cut-out is just too darling! would be great to win it! (annikaferk@[email protected])

  11. I love the fabric you used for the dress. I like using coordinating fabrics too when I make something. Would love to win this pattern.

  12. Beautiful Dress! I just finished sewing my daughters yesterday. I have to ask. Where do you get your petticoats and the lace gloves for your little girl? My daughter is 2.5. I need a short one and a long one for her. Thank you for any help.

  13. Oh I would looove that pattern! How do you get your kids to pose so nicely. My girl always wants to make silly faces or gets food on her face no matter how shortly I had cleaned her up… She’s 2.5yrs btw

  14. I agree with the others, your blog post on the sweetheart dress is an inspiration! I love (ALL of Shannon’s patterns, really) – but when I saw the sweetheart dress, I though, I WANT, but maybe I’m not good enough yet… Hope to win the chance to try!

    Cheers!

  15. I love Shannon’s blog. She’s super duper talented and always seems so very sweet. Speaking of sweet, this pattern would be a dream to have!

  16. So beautiful! I’d love to try it out! Leave a random question, eh? Okay . . . what is your favorite cookie recipe? I’m having a cookie craving :-)

  17. Ok, so I’m imagining a sweetheart dress with a lace-back cardigan for chilly weather. With the lace, you could totally see the heart cutout, but little arms would be warm and cozy! Pick me, pick me!!!!!

  18. This really is the cutest dress. And I am hoping to get lucky and win the pattern somewhere. (I’m thinking this would be a great Easter dress, or summer dress, or Oh no, I better buy more fabric!)

  19. this dress is so sweet. i would love to whip one up quick for my five year old! she’s worn skirts and tights everyday for at least a month… she’ dlove a new dress!

  20. This dress pattern is the prettiest one I have seen, and I love that it doesn’t take a day to put it all together. You are very talented :)

  21. That pattern is super cute and the fabric you’ve used are very pretty!! Would definitly have a go at it while it’s still summer time here.

  22. OMG! This is the most Beautiful girly dress I have seen in quite some time! Reminds me of the days when us girls would get really “dolled up” just for a Gal Pals Birthday party!! THIS is a Party Dress if I EVER saw one!! Oh, how I would love one in MY size!!!
    Thank you Sweet Shannon!!! You ROCK! [email protected]

  23. I have to admit I am completely jealous of the fabric. I’m a black and white/pop of color junkie when it comes to Wub’s special occasion clothes. What a beautiful dress.

  24. Oh my goodness! That dress is just darling! I don’t have any children, but I can hint of at least four friends with little girls who would just love this!! It’s the perfect pattern to add some fun girlyness to a classic little dress silhouette.

  25. I am pretty sure it would take me days to make that dress but I am willing to give it a good try. My granddaughter would absolutely love the heart in the back.

  26. This would be the perfect dress for this years Father-Daughter dance! I hope I win… if not i will just have to purchase it, which is what I intended to do, but why not take a chance at winning it! *fingers crossed!!!!

  27. So delicious. I took a sewing hiatus when my daughter was born; now that she’s one, I’m getting back to it, starting with clothes for her (her birthday dress was based on your vintage holiday dress pattern). I’d love to make this for her for a wedding we’re going to in June!

  28. i love this dress and am hoping to win it and i will make my girl one and a couple of her cousins one each. it is great and will go good for this summer too. i have seen other things from shannon and she does a great job on sewing.

  30. I’ve been asked to make flower girl dresses as a favour (panic) – the sweetheart dress would be perfect and maybe I could produce something presentable with this pattern…..I’ve never sewn from a PDF pattern and have only drafted a bodice once, (fail) – I am very in awe of the talent it takes to make these patterns available to download….. Here’s hoping I get to give this a go!

  31. I love the convenience of pdf patterns and this one looks like a keeper. My random question is: When are you opening your Etsy shop, I’m dying to know what you will be selling!

  32. this is a precious dress. I would love to have the chance to make it for my granddaughter…the heart cut-out is a wonderful touch to this adorable dress. thanks for the chance

  33. I am in love with this dress! Shannon’s beautiful smile always brings a smile to my own face, and I like that she’s in my neck of the woods here in the Pacific Northwest.
