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.
