I’ve shown you amazing, intermediate projects from Blaverry here and here but today I’m happy to feature an easy, quick sew- the Gracie Dress.
It’s a cute, raglan-sleeve knit dress with a drop waist and fun little skirt hem.
The kangaroo pocket in the front is a darling detail.
For our version I got to play with the brand new Club line from Raspberry Creek Fabrics.
I used the aqua abstract floral for the skirt and it matched so perfect with the berry heathered french terry from the shop too (currently out of stock but will be in soon).
The finishing in the pattern is superb. It has a bound neckline like the Finn but I chose to use the back of my french terry for the neckline and did a simple t-shirt neckband. It did make it wider than the intended finish but I think it’s great for this sporty look.
We are desperately in need of more everyday clothes so this pattern was perfect. It’s a quick sew and will be great for school.
If you’re unfamiliar with Blaverry patterns, I have a few tips. They are concise so the instructions are not overwhelming. This can be hard if you’re new to a technique (google is your friend!) but also keeps the pattern steps clear and easy. I’m also glad I have my models handy because fitting kids can be tricky. This is a straight size 7 on my tall skinny girl and it fits great. I would trim an inch or two from the main dress if I made this for my more standard size younger daughter. I do get the pattern for free but I have been so happy with all of my Blaverry finished projects.
