Ansley Pattern by Blaverry

I'm so excited to be hosting a blog tour for Christie over at Blaverry Patterns. You'll want to stay tuned all week because some amazing bloggers have sewn up Christie's newest pattern, Ansley dress and top. You won't believe how many options this pattern has!

I decided I was going to make this one for Amelia. My plan was to make it out of cotton, but Amelia insisted on a fabric that was 100% unknown fibers. I picked it up anyway since it seemed to make her happy, and did the burn test when I got home to determine this beautiful fabric's composition, you can find out more about the burn test here. I would tend to think that the fabric is a rayon blend.


I made a simple version of the dress, with the short sleeve, no collar, and and the hi-low hem. There are buttons on the front yoke.

Saddly its getting too cold to photograph outside so we had to set up the makeshift sudio, but I did manage to get one good ouside shot before Amelia started to shake and tell me she was cold.

Here are some of the pattern details;

  • Sizes range from 9 months to 14 years
  • Instructions accompanied by tech drawings, pattern is intermediate level
  • Measurement charts for perfect sizing in metric an imperial measurements!
  • Printing instructions
  • Chart indicating what pages to be printed for each option, because there are 88 pages to this pattern 
  • Layer printing to print out only the size you need

I feel like I'm ahead of the game, this is the perfect dress for the Holiday Season, so guess what Amelia will be wearing Christmas Eve!

This pattern is a great buy at 8.50$ but take advantage of the coupon code, use "ILOVEBLAVERRY10"  at checkout!

Take a look at the other stops on the tour!
Until next time, xx.
