Lily Bird Studio Pattern Giveaway!

I am so excited to hold a giveaway for my new sponsor Lily Bird Studio!

Let me show you couple of my favorites...

Katrina Dress... (12 month to 8 years old)

Aren't they adorable?!
She is here today to tell you little bit about her. Take it away Cecilia!

I am Cecilia; I live in Uruguay (my birth country). I am married to my loving and supportive husband and I am mom of a 2.5 years old gorgeous and very active girl :)

In November 2007, 1 month after we got married, we moved to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, because of my husband's new job with the idea of living there for 2 years. While Martin had lived in Malaysia a few years before, it was a totally new and different experience for me, adaptation was difficult at first, but the whole experience was worth it, I enjoyed living in Malaysia and often miss many things from there.

At 3 months after arriving in Malaysia we learned that we were expecting a baby! And in September 2008 our princess Sophia was born, our most challenging experience on that trip on the other side of the world! She is always a challenge and a huge inspiration for all my creations.
In February 2009 we moved to São Paulo, Brazil also because of my husband's job and finally in mid-2010 we moved back to our home country.

I love all handmade things since I was a child, I always loved to make stuff with my hands, make something beautiful out of nothing. My passion in life was always clothing design, I used to spend a lot of time designing party dresses and my mother used to sew some of them for me. As a grown up I learned to sew myself. When my daughter was born I started to design clothes for her, that was when the real passion about sewing began, I got a sewing machine and started to create all kind of things, from toys to clothes and share some of them in my blog, I found a whole world of possibilities in crafting, sewing, painting. Soon I learned sewing patterns drafting so I could share my own experience with other people.

Later I opened an Etsy shop (TheLilyBirdStudio) where I sell sewing pattern for kids clothing, my designs are comfortable yet stylish for little kids and almost all of my products are easy projects for beginners to intermediate sewers.

Dresses from Shabby Apple

Wow, every dress is on sale? (You know me, I LOVE dresses). Hmmm... Something to think about.

Roamin’ Holiday is one of my favorite collections; here are some of my favorites...

Piazza Navona: Isn't this a gorgeous dress? The color of the dress is sophisticated and grown up, but the ruffly neckline and how the skirt flows make this dress more dramatic!

Aurelia: I love the simplicity of this dress. The corsage on the waist line completes the look. How adorable!

Baciami!: What a brilliant design! I always loved skirts with borders, but I have never seen a dress like this. The color red gives a playful aspect to this sleek dress.
