sally dress pattern tour + giveaway. . . (closed)


Pattern | Sally Dress   Fabric | Yuwa Cotton Lawn

This dress. . . what can I say? I'm in love. I was so excited when Shannon of luv in the mommyhood asked if I'd like to join her Sally Dress tour because I've been wanting to make this dress ever since seeing her Vintage May version. The pattern ranges in size from 2T to 8 and includes a sleeve pattern if you prefer a short or elbow length sleeve. I went with the sleeveless version since I thought it would be easier to layer under cardigans and jackets in cooler weather and I just like the look. The square neckline and super-sized pockets are such sweet details and the bodice is fully lined which is always nice. Overall it was an easy sew and perfectly suitable for an adventurous beginner. The dress has no closures (it just slips on and off) which means no buttonholes! 

And the fabric. . . it's just plain dreamy. This was my first foray into Japanese fabric and may now be an addict. It is the perfect weight and I like how soft and airy it is. Navy blue is one of my favorite colors on the kiddo and I'm a big fan of small floral prints. I'm pretty sure this dress ranks in my top ten favorite sewing projects that I've made. And as you can see below, Syd is pretty excited about her pretty new dress!

  22. My favorite thing to have sewn was dresses for my Mom...She died of cancer a few years ago....but I used to be her favorite seamstress. Of course she is the one that taught me to sew many years ago. I still have scraps from her dresses and made myself a quilt adding some of them in. Now I enjoy sewing for my granddaughter and grandsons. Love your blog...

  41. This is such a sweet dress on the most beautiful little girl!
    My best and proudest sewing project was a Cinderella dress I made for my daughter when she was 4 years old. It was pink and purple and had pearls and tiers of ruffles. She wore it until we could no longer zip up the bodice. It is now in a bin awaiting a grand-daughter!

  44. I loved making onesies, bows, blankets and dresses while waiting for my daughter to make her debut this summer. She's our first so it was fun looking at all of you guys in blogland for inspiration and ideas. :) I also enjoyed making a couture dress for my husband's work event a couple of years ago; I learned how to finish things more professionally and polished instead of so homemade.

  47. My personal best was sewing dresses for my two nieces, ages 3 & 7, who were newly adopted and had never worn anything so pretty. Ruffles, tiny flowers, a long tie at the waist tied in a big bow - oh they were pretty girls! They were matching dresses but for the color, older niece's dress was pink and younger niece's dress was yellow. They'd flip over a Sally Dress with those deep pockets so perfect for carrying little treasures!
