It’s almost Easter which means new Spring dresses are popping up everywhere.
Sewn in gorgeous floral it just screams spring time to me.
Christie at Blaverry is so good at pushing me out of my comfort zone. This was my first collar and button placket and… I came, I saw, and I conquered it!!!
This dress pairs perfectly with the Decklyn Jacket by Blaverry making this outfit one I am truly proud of.
So many sewing fears tackled in one glorious pairing.
Blaverry patterns are very concise and well written. There is no hand holding for those looking for it but that makes for a short, simple tutorial that isn’t overwhelming.
This pattern features front and back darts that make it easy to get a custom fit on your little model.
Inseam pockets are always a plus too!
It’s such a sweet, classic pattern that I’m looking forward to making again and again.
Now let’s talk about that ah-mazing fabric!! It’s Art Gallery’s Forest Floor line that I picked up from Raspberry Creek Fabrics (this is currently sold out but linked to another great print from the same line).
It’s buttery soft and sewed up just beautifully. It’s the perfect weight for this pattern and I felt totally spoiled working with it.
I feel like my job as a mom who sews is to make my children feel comfortable and beautiful in the clothes I make for them. To see the joy this dress brought to my cute girly is totally the reason I sew.
I love the sophistication of the dress but this picture reminds me that she’s still my sweet little girl.
