One of my favourite projects last year was creating the Carkeek dress for the 30 Days of Sundresses with Melissa of Melly Sews.
Well I am back again for this years Sundressing 2017 with my newest FREE pattern, Magnolia!
Magnolia is a knit swing dress with a hi-low hem that is the perfect dress for those warm summer days. The back features a racerback with gathered yoke.
With the added fabric from the gathered back detail you get so much swing in the dress, that paired with a more fitted front bust gives you a great silhouette without being too tight.
Winter has officially hit Seattle and I knew a vest would be a perfect layer to get me through these cold months. While I love a plaid vest or even a down vest, sometimes you want something that is a little bit more of an elevated look. Let me introduce you to my newest free pattern, the Bell Town Vest.
One of my favourite things to do is take one of my patterns and make a couple changes to get something new. The Carkeek that I am sharing with you today is really filling a hole in my wardrobe, lightweight layer for cool summer evenings. And with just a couple changes to the pattern as written you have what I am calling my Carkeek remix.
As you hopefully already know, the Carkeek dress is a free pattern available in 4 sizes that is available for download here.
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!
