Love in Paris Dress {Pattern and Tutorial}…


Have you seen the movie Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen?  I am not typically a Woody Allen fan, my hubby and I rented this not knowing it was one of his. But I must admit, we actually really liked it! The screenplay was something so different than anything we had ever seen. Owen Wilson was fantastic in it, and his leading ladies were so fascinating each in their own right. But my goodness, the costumes…I was in love.

So much so, that I simply had to remake one of their 20′s dresses into something for my own kids.

And that is how Chloe and Madeline came upon their Easter dresses this year. In 20′s style…

I decided to make Chloe’s in all pink linen, with contrasting pink trim. I like this because you really get to see the detail, and well…Chloe loves her some pink.


We had a lot of fun at the photo shoot. She especially likes it when I do the chicken dance.



But I must admit, I think I like Madeline’s version more.

Whenever I ask Madeline what she wants to wear she always says the same thing – ‘flowers’. So naturally, I aim to please…

Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!

*Please Note – The link should bring you directly to a Google doc. This works for most people, but for some reason every now and then I will get an e-mail with a ‘request to share’ from the few it doesn’t seem to work for. Please understand, I try to share as often as I can by sending a direct link. But cannot always accommodate the growing number of e-mails I receive on a weekly basis for this regarding my numerous tutorials that have used google docs in the past. I have opened a question in the support forum as to why a shared link doesn’t work for everybody, and cannot seem to get an answer. It is for this very reason that I am trying to move away from using google docs in the future. Thank you.

    oh my, this is so adorable. I am such a sucker for sailor style clothes. That floral print is precious too. I wish people would stop putting things out there that add to my ridiculous list of things I want to make. Lol
