Ugh, couldn’t you just die?
A few weeks ago you might have heard me mention that I was taking a sewing class & you guys should totally come take it with me, well now that you see how darn cute the dress is that we made aren’t you mad at yourself for not coming? I thought so.
Lucky for you the pattern for the ‘Big Bow Dress’ seen above is available for purchase. It’s by the absolutely lovely Miranda from One Little Minute, she’s also the one who taught the class. I could never be a teacher. Ever. Especially to adults. I swear Miranda would take us through a step, most of the time even showing us twice, & still just about every single one of us would need her to repeat the whole thing again with each of us individually. I was watching her explain the invisible zipper for 10th time & I was just floored by how sweet & graciously she repeated the steps over & over & over. I would’ve been like, “Seriously?! What, did I stutter??” ::cue the crowds demanding refunds::
This dress made me feel like a sewing superstar. Lining with hidden seams? No way. An invisible zipper? I could never. Well guess what, I DID IT! If you’re an intermediate sewer who wants to make a wonderfully sweet yet professional looking dress that will last a lifetime this is the pattern for you. You can purchase it here. Oh! I forgot, since the print I chose (Michael Miller’s China Doll) is a bit busy I wanted to have the option to leave the bow off at times. I love it both ways & luckily with the way Miranda wrote the pattern the bow easily slips on & off through a button hole hidden under the pleat. Fabulous!
