GYCT Spring Dress Blog Tour

What happens when I let Amelia choose one of three fabrics... She insists she needs all three of them for one dress. Thank goodness they were all white with a navy print!

I showed Amelia the listing photo of the Rival Raglan by GYCT. She got very excited at the prospect of having a new spring dress that was comfy and that would replace another dress that she grew out of.

Amelia actually had a plan and she knew what she wanted so I took full advantage. She was quite clear she wanted the sleeves to have stipes and the skirt to have polka-dots. I added the striped band at the bottom of the skirt to balance out all those prints and in the end she loves it and that's all that really matters!

First, I'm so happy to say that sizing is spot on when you follow the size chart! And it's a really quick sew, almost all done with the serger and used a twin needle for hems. You get all the different sleeve lengths in this pattern from long to short and everything in between! The only thing I may have done different from the instructions is adding the clear elastic at the waist in the seam allowance so that everything stays nice and straight and the waistline doesn't get stretched out from wear. 

Also, there are two cut lines, one for the t-shirt and one for the dress to add the skirt. I left it t-shirt length since it did give a couple of extra inches to the bodice of the dress. I wanted the dress to have a little bit of a drop waist to it. Amelia really loves that style and I didn't want to disappoint.

I used a cotton lycra blend from my local Fabricville.We love this blend, it's so easy to wash and really comfortable to wear!

More fun styles are on the way with the GYCT Spring Dress Tour, don't be shy go take a look at the other stops! And don't for get to enter the giveaway!
