Hello Blithe! Today is my turn to share what I made for the blog tour. The Blithe collection features so many gorgeous prints it was so hard to choose!
For the first outfit I used the Dear Deer Knit in Teal, Bows in Whisper, and mint tulle for underneath.
The sewing pattern, Mistletoe was designed by one of my favorite PDF pattern companies, Petite Stitchery and co.
I added a little ruffle to the sleeves which is one of my favorite details!
I "fussy cut" the bodice so that the deer was in the center and I love the way it turned out.
The skirt part of this dress is a circle and therefore has amazing twirl factor, perfect for showcasing this beautiful print!
The second look I created I used the following prints- Dear Deer in Teal, Bows in Whisper, Joy Wreaths in Plum, and Solid in Cherry Lip Gloss for the ruffle on bodice. The sewing pattern, Maize, is designed by Petite Stitchery and co.
The Maize pattern does include an option for a hi-low hem but since I wanted to add a ruffle I did a little modification. First, I shortened the skirt 3-4" since I wanted the ruffle to be at least 3". Then I added seam allowances to both the skirt and ruffle. I gathered the ruffle to the bottom of the skirt and then continued with the instructions in the pattern.
I love all the little details on this dress- the sleeve bands, keyhole closure with ties and ruffles on the front!
A HUGE thank you to Art Gallery fabrics and Katarina Roccella for letting me be a part of the blog tour!
