Bean Crafty {The Norah Dress, by MouseHouse Creations}

It’s been awhile since I did a sewing post, so I thought i’d share this little dress with you.  I found the fabric on a vintage ladies skirt from the Goodwill and as soon as I saw it, I knew it’d be a perfect match for this pattern.  This dress has a bunch of options included in the pattern, including long sleeves, a little tie that goes under the collar, and a tunic length.  It goes all the way from 12 mos to size 12, so it’s definitely going to be a keeper for us.  The dress came together really easily.  It took me about two hours to sew it with a lot of kid interruptions along the way.  You can purchase the pattern on etsy, at


The dress is a simple A-line shape with an optional peter pan collar.  This was my first time in years doing a collar or sleeves and it came together really easily.

The back of the dress has an easy to sew keyhole opening with a loop and button closure.  No zippers or button holes!
