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.
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.
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:
