Chevron Maxi Dress Pattern Tester and Free Pattern ~ Closed

Last summer I had my really good friend help me make a pattern for the cutest quilt ever.  I am so addicted to chevrons, they are so fun!!  As soon as I figure out all of our chicken scratched notes I will share with you the instructions on how we made this quilt.
We made my baby a quilt before he was born, and once that was done I wanted to sew something else with a chevron in it.  Another love of mine are basic maxi skirts.  They are so comfortable and versatile for most occasions.  So with these two things as inspiration, I set out to make this fun new sewing pattern for girls.  It is such a fun dress with a short cap sleeve and scoop neckline.  Made with a jersey knit fabric, and a fun chevron print in the skirt.  I couldn't resist it.  After I made one for my daughter, I made one for my niece to match.  And I have had plenty more requests for this fun dress.
Patterns will come in sizes 2-12 for girls.
Well, I have the pattern ready to share with you!!  I am looking for 2 people to test this pattern for me.  If you would like to test this please follow the giveaway instructions below.  Here's the deal for you. You get the pattern for free. I only ask that you are able to sew the dress within a week of me emailing it to you, and give me any comments or suggestions you may have.  If you have any reason that you think you may not be able to get it sewn in time, please do not enter the raffle.  As soon as you have tested the sewing pattern as a thank you to you for your help, I will send you another free sewing pattern of your choice from my shop.  Here is a link to my shop to check it out - www.etsy.com/shop/mytaylormade.  
Contest will last 1 week starting tonight at midnight and ending at midnight, on Tuesday, June 18th.

I'd love to test this in a size 3 for my daughter. I have some solid knits that I've been itching to use up, this would be perfect!

I have a daughter that is in 12 months and another in 2T :) I've got fun prints and solids that would be adorable for this dress. I'm a full time tester for foo foo threads, lilygiggles, have tested for Heidi and Finn, peek a boo pattern shop, monkeybugs, shwin and shwin, aivilo, and many others! I'd love to test for you too!
