Spring is here and I can finally share with you the sleeveless Leschi dress I made a few weeks ago. I had been planning a sleeveless version since I released the pattern in October, so I thought why not go for not only sleeveless but also a dress. This is the ultimate spring/summer dress!
The fabric I chose really chose me while I was working the Style Maker Fabrics booth at Sew Expo last month, I was the perfect weight and drape for my vision. Unfortunately they are all sold out, but check out these other rayons you can choose from, I especially love this floral rayon challis.
I am so excited to be joining Melissa of Melly Sews for her 5th Annual 30 Days of Sundresses. This series is always so much fun to follow along with because you never know what everyone is going to share.
With the temperatures rising here in Seattle I knew this was the perfect opportunity to draft a relaxed fit dress that could be worn dressed up or casual. I am all about relaxed and flowy so a dolman style shift dress seemed right up my alley. It was from these ideas that I came up with my newest pattern, Carkeek, which is also a free pattern for all of you!
I don’t think I have ever mentioned here that I have been sewing samples for my friend Allie of Indiesew for the last year. I remember when she emailed me about it, I couldn’t respond fast enough because really, who doesn’t love working with a super great lady while also sewing fun patterns. If you haven’t checked out their website you should head there now, I will wait…
It’s pretty fantastic, eh?
Amy of Brownie Goose Designs has released a new dress pattern, Cricket and I was lucky enough to test this amazing pattern. I have been a big fan of hers for awhile and was so excited to participate in the testing of this dress. Because Sophie is such a skinny mini I decided to test the 18 month so that it would fit her in the bodice but would end up more a tunic length.
As I am working my way through my patterns to test them out and see which ones I like and which ones are not going to be a part of my shop, I came across one of the newest patterns by Amy of Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop.
Let me just say that she has done it again and released another amazing free pattern. She has so many great patterns available but I love that she creates a new pattern every year to offer free to all of her fans. All you have to do is subscribe to her newsletter and you can download the pattern. Seriously, go check it out you will not be disappointed with the quality of pattern she is offering.
