Earlier this week I had a chance to sew up the Sally Dress Pattern by Very Shannon. I adore Very Shannon patterns. Her work – whether it is on her blog, in a book, working with fabric or yarn – is always exquisite. In fact, I had the honor of being a part of the Sally Dress Pattern Tour last October (I cannot believe a year has went by!!!), when I sewed the pattern for my eldest. She stills wears that dress! So when I recently purchased some of the most gorgeous fabric I ever laid eyes on, Nani Iro Double Gauze Libre France…I simply needed to make something with it immediately. No fabric like this should ever just sit on the shelf.
BEAUTIFUL FABRIC MUST BE SEWN.
And it must be used with a pattern that you already know will be perfection. The Sally Dress.
I call that last pose ‘Fiddler on the Roof’.
Madeline love her new dress, and so do I. So much so that I may or may not try to force her to wear it every single day it is clean until she outgrows it. We had a blast taking photos in it. Lots of ballerina poses.
With no button or zipper closures, the Sally Dress is perfect for the beginner seamstress. It simply slips right over your child’s head. And of course every little girl loves pockets – she had hers filled within .2 seconds of wearing this dress. What I love most about this dress is the special shoulder detail, which I did not get a shot of in this post – but you can see in my earlier post linked above in the intro paragraph. The detail on the simple ‘V’ shoulder meet up I find just darling, and really makes this pattern stand out for me.
I highly recommend this pattern to anyone who will listen. It is fabulous.
The Sally Dress is a part of this month’s Pattern Member bundle. Get 3 patterns for just $10 per month. But act fast, these patterns will only be available at that price for the next 3 days. Come October, a brand new set will be released. Yeah!
As always, thank you so much for stopping by…until next time, happy sewing!
