It’s been two months now since releasing the First Day Dress Pattern….and I absolutely LOVE what you guys are doing with it. Browsing the Flickr group and checking the Instagram group #firstdaydressmade are so much fun for me. Seriously ladies. Cute stuff!
I need to do a roundup of your creations….all your creations. Cause there are some killer shorts and baby baskets in that group too. Um, like this?! LOVE.
So today I’ll start by sharing the very Firsts, of the First Day Dresses and Tops.
These photos are from pattern testers who tried it all out for me, and who always make patterns better than they could be by giving great feedback and suggestions.
Some are them are bloggers; some are not. And they’re all women who love to sew, like you.
So here we go.
I think I had you at bright floral, right?
• The bright peplum above is by Erin at Hungie Gungie. She’s made a few different versions on her darling blog, and claims she was never in peplums…..till she started making this top. Yay!
• Pink Emily on the grass is by sewing friend Melani
• Blue dots peplum is by Teresa at Dandelion Drift. I love how grown-up she made this. People are always asking for tween ideas. Here you go! She also made the white with gold triangles dress, altering the pattern for a slightly different look. Oooo I love it.
• Stripey A-line dress is from sewer Corrine, who added extra length to the hem, which looks cute on her 7-year-old. And she took these pics at a castle in Germany. Yes!
Next up we have some colorful looks by Knitty Bitties (left) and Frances Suzanne (right). The belts are killing me. Great accessory! And the color blocking on Andrea’s dress is so much fun. Click over to see the cute details on the front.
• Alexis at My Sweet Sunshine made three different versions of this dress–each with their own personality, and beautiful photos to go along.
• Another peplum from Hungie Gungie (please click over to see her daughter stepping on big brother’s bum. Haah. Made me smile).
• More photos from the Germany castle and sewist Corrine. She used the placket front, which looks adorable.
Palak from Make it Handmade made a twirly version for her daughter’s first day of Preschool. Weee!
Francess Suzanne made another version for their darling niece (left) and sewer Ashley (right) whipped out a top for her little girl just days before moving across country. Now that’s some sewing enthusiasm I’m sure many of you can relate to.
And below, another gorgeous shot from My Sweet Sunshine with a southwestern vibe.
THANK YOU pattern testers.
I hope everyone’s First Days are going well!
