Easter Dresses!

2013 April 4

When I bought my pattern bundle a few months ago I was lucky enough to score a copy of the Goodship Dress by One Girl Circus.

Goodship Dress by Karen LePage

Karen has created the cutest dress with a huge amazing bow on the front and somehow I convinced my “twirl-loving” oldest daughter to go for it! (I apologize ahead of time for the barrage of photos! I couldn’t decide which ones to post. This photo shoot was so much fun. The girls were high on sugar (Easter and cookies) and therefore a bit wiggly – amazingly everything worked out great!)

The pattern is amazing to work with. Everything is very clearly written and illustrated and VERY well though out. The inside of the dress looks as amazing as the outside. The side seams and hidden pockets are even put together with french seams!

The only thing I think I would change on when I make this again is that the neckline is a bit low for my girls – could be I made them a size too big. I think I am going to add in some hidden buttons under the collar to hold it up a bit higher. It is fine as long as it is tied – but the kids like to pull on the bows so they come undone pretty easily.

The fabrics I ended up with for this project were a dream to work with. The gray is a linen/polyester blend and it is so soft… I have about 1/2 meter left and I’m hoping to make something for myself from it! The pink is from the Fiesta line by Jennifer Sampou for Robert Kaufman. The green is my first stash of Amy Butler fabric. (Amazingly – I’ve never bought her fabric before!) It is the Gypsy Caravan line in Deco Dots from Amy Butler’s Stash. Apparently this is a reprint from her first fabric line.

Your Sewing Tip for Today: Ever have trouble turning a sash that has an angled sewn end? Here is a super easy way to do it (via one of my most favorite blogs: Made By Rae).

I’ll leave you with the one and only workable photo with both kids in it!
