Its been a while since I have blogged any sewing things. Life gets so busy these days... ok lets face it since starting sewing any free time has been taking up either sewing, stalking pattern designers, reading posts in facebook groups about sewing, watching tutorials.. and well, buying fabric.
I have come a long way in the past few months, and have even been lucky enough to test patterns now for some designers. Most recently I was lucky enough to test some Love Notions patterns.
The Girls Bluezette Dress, This dress is perfect for all ages, I tested it on my gorgeous 11 year old doesn't she just look stunning?
|Size 10 elbow length sleeves with hi-lo skirt|
This pattern has so many options! I think Tami, the love notions designer is officially the queen of options. You have the choice of 3 sleeves lengths; tank, cap and elbow, and 3 skirt lengths; Tulip, Hi Low and knee length gathered. The bodice is fully lined if you choose as is the skirt! so you can use gorgeous lace overlays and sheer fabric, the is no limit to what you can do with this Pattern.
This was my first time sewing with Chiffon, with all the tips and hints along the way it made attempting is a breeze. There are detailed photos, and detailed steps for all methods and all options, even down to how to hem with fabric like Chiffon.
All in all I highly recommend this pattern for anyone with girls! Tweens will especially love this pattern so will mums, with it being modest yet still fashionable!
