So a while back I was selected to be a part of Thread Riding Hood’s Frolic with Fabric Spot challenge and received a lovely package of fat quarters to make anything with! My daughter is always wrapping her baby dolls in anything she can find for a blanket, so I decided to make a little quilt – a hexagon quilt – for the dolls 🙂
I’m so excited to show you my version of the Matinee Dress from Jennuine Design (*affiliate link)! One of the things I love about being on a pattern tour is seeing all of the amazing variations everyone takes on a single pattern! Your options really are unlimited with a little creativity! While this pattern can stand on it’s own, there were a few changes I made and you’ll see them below! First of all, here’s the finished dress:
I had the chance to test a newly digitized pattern, the Odette, by Sunday Girl Designs (you can find more of her patterns here*). What a cute little pattern! This is a dress version of the top, but also included in the pattern are shorts and capris, and a sleeveless version of the top/dress.
I used my precious Elk Grove by Birch fabric that came all the way from Belgium! J loves it and calls it her Elk Dress 🙂
Hey there! I was privileged to test the Skylark Tee by Gracious Threads last week, and what a great little pattern! From the front, it’s a nice, slim-fitting tee, but the back has a little surprise for you! A little inset triangle lets you add some contrast using knit or woven….
Isn’t that adorable?? I upcycled an old t-shirt for the light turquoise, and used some Waves and Whales from l’oiseau Fabric (*affiliate links) for the contrast inset and neckline. J calls this her whale shirt 😉
