The Sally Dress Tour

Greetings!  A happiest of Thursday's to you all!

So I have way more to show you from the patterns in the Sew Fab bundle.  WAY more!

Today is extra special though, because I'm also a part of the Sally Dress Tour, sharing my version of the latest pattern from Shannon of luvinthemommyhood!

Have you seen the beautiful Sally's flitting about the interwebs? Gorgeous.

I knew, living in New England, that I'd need to winterize the Sally Dress.  But it was not hard!  I chose a cool Fall/Winter color palette and heavier weight fabrics.  It's perfect for layering with tights and cardigans and I LOVE IT.

This dress had me at hello square neck line.  I adore the shape of this dress.  It's not over-the-top girly, the HUGE pockets are an obvious win, and the pull-it-right-on design is just the kind of ease I look for in a finished garment.  Add all that up and we've got a dress that Emmy and I both love.

I totally enjoyed sewing up the Sally Dress, too! It was quick and straightforward, but I also learned a few things along the way.  Shannon's patterns have some of the best digital illustrations that I've come across.  My visual brain really appreciates that!  

Alterations to the pattern were minimal... I shortened the hem by an inch and lengthened the sleeves to the longest length.  This is a size 3t, and for reference, Emmy is a tall, limby three and a half year old. I'm pretty sure I made it too short and it'll be a tunic next year, but hey, that's OK!  Still love it.

The Sally Dress is a part of the Sew Fab bundle - a collection of 26 patterns for just $29.95.  It's an incredible deal!

Did I mention the twirl factor?!  If I did not, BEHOLD:

ADORABLE, the twirls!

My main fabric is a navy 'linen look' from Jo-Ann's from a long time ago!  Like I said in a previous post - I am trying SO HARD to sew down my stash!  I have (semi-feasible!) notions of turning my big ol' unused attic into a studio, so the buying of all the fabric is temporarily on hold. TEMPORARILY.

The pockets are a luscious velveteen from Anna Maria Horner.  The bodice and pockets are lined with a chartreuse cotton.  All from the stash - HIGH FIVES!

I LOVE the palette of this dress!  I love how it all came together!

Thanks so much to Shannon for having me on the Sally Dress Tour!  I love this dress, and so does Em!  I will definitely be making another one for next Summer - I love the sleeveless versions I've been seeing.
