Hello and I hope you all had a great week. Also, Happy Mother’s Day to all you AMAZING Mommies! Alright, It has been way too long since I posted about what I have been up to in the Pattern Testing World. Well , here is a run down of the last two Patterns I tested…
First up is the Bateau Garden dress by Winter Wear Designs..
-Tunic, Vintage or Regular length Dress
-Scooped or Cross Strap Back
-Size Range 1-14 (That is HUGE)
-Pattern also includes Pettiskirt tutorial
Fabric: Tula Pink-Elizabeth Collection
I adore the Tent Stripes and The Elizabeth 16th Century Selfie Together! I was lucky to find these at a local Fabric shop that I have fallen in love with called-Needle in a Fabric Stash
Next up is Violette Field Threads Loralie Dress Pattern
-Size range 2T-9/10
-Two bodice Style
-Pleated option on bodice
-Double Layered Skirt
-Easily dressed up or down
-Button Back with placket
I actually made two versions of the dress- For the First I placed the insert on the outside of the back bodice and also used faux leather trim instead of the sash.
I simple ADORE how this dress turned out! I used a Light Tan Linen for the double layered skirt, Gray/Blue Stripe Cotton for the bodice and to top It off Liberty of London for the Insert! This particular Liberty of London was used in the new Cinderella Movie.
For the second dress version I made per instruction with sash and bodice insert placed inside the bodice. My Daughter was SO excited for this fabric. This one was her FAVORITE!
For this version I used Art Gallery Fabric, Morning Walk by Leah Duncan
So there you have it. That’s what I have been up to in the Pattern Testing World 🙂
See you next time…
