Uptown - Downtown Dress Blog Tour

Here is my Uptown/Downtown dress by Sew Straight & Gather. Amelia was so pleased with her new dress. This one is comfort and style all in one! You'll want to read to the end because there's an awesome giveaway thanks to amazing sponsors! 

Be sure to visit Sew Staight & Gather on facebook to see what's new, you can also purchase the pattern in the Sew Staight & Gather Esty shop, use the code uptowndowntowntour for 30% off at checkout. 

This dress was so easy and fast to put together with detailed instructions of different finishing depending on the style you want to achieve. Different sleeve lenghts are also included in the pattern, long, half sleeve and cap sleeve.

I finished off the neckline and the sleeve hems using the French bias method. For the hem of the dress I used my serger to make a rolled hem.

And let's pause to pick some dandelions becasue she says they match her dress...

Just a few details about this pattern:
  • Design was intending fro knit fabric only
  • Size range is from 2 - 10
  • Instructions including for diffrent styles of finshing
  • Quick and easy to put together, degree of difficulty I would say confident beginner
I'm sure I'm not the first one to have said it, but I want one like this for me!

Just so you know, this pattern was given to me at no charge for the purpose of creating something for the tour, but all opinions are my own!

Be sure to visit the other stops on the tour, some great dresses have been created with this pattern!
