Uptown/Downtown Dress Pattern Expansion Tour

This summer Sew Straight and Gather released their Uptown/Downtown Dress pattern. Terri made a good thing even better by creating FREE add-ons! So yes you do have to purchase the pattern here  but then you can get a bunch of options for free! Oh and I'll share a coupon code with you so you can get the dress pattern at a discount (and its also good for any pattern in the shop, heeeheee!) Use the code "UPTOWNEXPASION25" at checkout good through Saturday the 22nd.

You may have remembered the first dress I made (click here!) with this pattern. So this time I made it with long sleeves and used a fold over elastic at the neckline.

I wanted to make a cozy maxi version, but I just didn't have enough of the fabric Amelia wanted, and there was no changing her mind.

The long sleeve is going to be just perfect layered with thick tights a a cute pair of leather shoes. And the length is right to the knee. 

Here are some of the options that you get for free with the pruchase of the pattern:

  • Cowl neckline
  • Long sleeves
  • Inseam pockets
  • Maxi length dress
  • Sun dress
  • There's also a tutorial on how to do some color blocking like you see here the third dress in the  image.

So much more inspiration to see, so go take a look at the other stops on the tour!
Don't forget to enter the giveaway!

Until next time, xx.
