Pattern Testing: Bohemian Babydoll Dress

I’m back!  Or more accurately, I’m still here!  I’m finally revisiting the ol’ blog after a rather lengthy hiatus (new baby, new house, attempting balance amidst the chaos, etc.) and what better way to kick off a return to the blogging world than with this adorable dress!

I had the great pleasure of participating as a pattern tester last week for the new Bohemian Babydoll Dress pattern from Elegance & Elephants.  I saw the Instagram post for testing and jumped on it, as I am a BIG fan of Heidi’s designs – remember those bubble pocket shorts?  The girls nearly wore through them last summer – love ’em!

The Bohemian Babydoll dress is a very quick sew, easy fit with no closures, a gorgeous slightly squared neckline and high-low curved detailing on both the bodice and the hem.  The dress can be made as a top and also without the ruffle sleeve to change it up a bit.

For my girls I chose the dress version with the sleeves, and grabbed these coordinating Moda “Hoopla” tulip prints from my stash.  For M (in the green) I sewed up a size 4 and for C a size 5.

The girls LOVE their new dresses and had a pretty good time with our little photo shoot/mini dance party too.

It just wouldn’t be C without a goofy face thrown in for good measure!

Go check out this new pattern – it was released yesterday!  And many thanks to Heidi for the opportunity to test this lovely new dress pattern.
