Remember Ansley, a pattern design by Blaverry? Well after the blog tour in November 2014, Christie made a few changes for the better and released the pattern, she also worked on a brand new design, Clara. I love her designs, there always something fun and original with every pattern. There's also a brand new website for Blaverry where you can purchase all her patterns.
Yes, I'm showing off a summer dress in the cold of winter, but this is how I shake my winter blues. Thinking warm thoughts and sewing pretty dresses getting ready for that lovely warm sun.
I just love the shape of the pockets. and they're just big enough to store those tiny treasures.
The collar in a contrast fabric and the buttons down the front gives the dress a little of a retro look that I adore.
This dress was made in an evening, so I would say its an easy sew and I used about 1.25 meters of main fabric and less than .5 meters of the contrast fabric in a size 4. The siaze range for this pattern is from 9 months to 16 years...this is one we'll be using for a long time!
The instructions are really easy to follow and each step has a clear tech drawing. This PDF also features layers so that you can print out only the pattern sizes you want.
I'll keep on thinking those warm thoughts and sewing up more pretty dresses and looking forward to the warmer weather. I've got a few more to show you!
Until next time, xx.
