.Skippy & Joey Hop.

It's SPRING - yay! Although our Winter actually wasn't that bad this year, it's nice to look forward to sunshine and warmer days.

Over the month of September we are going to be celebrating the release of the two newest Make It Perfect patterns, Skippy & Joey with a blog tour...hopping our way around the world to check out some dresses made by talented sewers. First up in the Skippy & Joey Hop are a few of my pattern testers (click on the links to read and see more from each person)...

Teresa from Dandelion Drift sewed a Big Joey for her daughter who loves to wear anything sewn from knit fabric. I LOVE her fabric pairing - bright floral + skinny stripes are a winner!
Marnie from Horris & Deedle sewed her two year old a few Joey dresses - this lemon print?....awesome! And she modified the pattern slightly to add a hood for extra warmth.

I laugh everytime I see the pics of Marnie's daughter with her pink sunnies, pushing her hands deep into the kangaroo pouch pockets of this striped Joey dress!!
Justine's daughter was feeling a little camera-shy but looks adorable in her Joey dress. I love how Justine managed to cut the pocket from a scrap of knit fabric - what a great way to use up those little bits of knit fabrics you have lying around! See more at JustMeJay.
Peta from Etcetera or Whatever used this fabulous European knit to sew a Joey dress for her daughter. Doesn't it look great?!
And finally, back to Marnie from Horris & Deedle with some more amazing dresses - this time for herself! I think this Skippy dress is my personal fave...such a lovely combination of blues and a very wearable everyday dress.
This dress is made from a combination of stretch lace with jersey lining - such a pretty dress and that scalloped hem creates a much more formal look.
And another one, this time sewn from merino wool (loooooove) with a lace applique detail around the neckline.
I hope you've loved seeing all of these dresses as much as I have! I'll be back with more soon and in the meantime, if you would like sew these dresses for yourself you can purchase them here:
