Dear Prudence ... Sewpony Vintage - pattern tour

A few weeks ago Suz from Sewpony put a picture of her oldest daughter online,
wearing this georgeous dress... and I immediately sent her a message:
Hi Suz, if you're looking for testers: pick me me me !!!
And she did!

I was soooo eager to make this beautiful dress...
and even more to show the result to all of you!

So here it is: on the Kick-off day of the Dear Prudence Blog Tour!

The pattern is fun to make, with such nice details like the supercute collar with buttons.

The shirring in front makes it ideal for toddlers learning to dress themselves,
or for moms to ease the morning rush,
because there are no buttons or zipper on this one!

The dress I made is meant for Fall, (or maybe for the 1st of September) with 3/4 sleeves,
but there's also a version without sleeves or cap sleeves. Equally gorgeous, all three of them!

To make the piping stand out a little bit more, I put an extra layer of fabric around
the standard one you can buy in the shops,
  but regular piping works just fine of course...

Also eager to get started? You can buy the pattern here
and throughout the tour (6-17 July) you can use the discount code: PRUDENCE15 to get 15% off.

I noticed that none of my pictures show the back of the dress...
so go and take a look at the other bloggers participating in the blog tour!
I'm sure they made their girls swirl!

Fabric: Moda Fabrics - Whale Navy Sky Hearty Good Wishes

  1. Your dress has caught my eye when I was looking through the testers pics :) It is gorgeous. Sounds like there are a few of us who waited very patiently (OK maybe not so patiently) for this pattern to be released :)

    1. Haha, thanks! Yes I was so happy I could test! I'm planning to make the dress for all three of my girls!

    2. I bet they will love it! Such a fun dress to make, and so comfy to wear (well, I am judging by the amount of monkeying around in this dress produced by my own little monkey haha)

  2. Knappe 1 septemberjurk!!! En vele dagen erna natuurlijk

  3. Zotjaloers ben ik op dat stofje:-) Kei mooi!

  4. Die contrasterende piping details zijn echt super. Grappige stof trouwens, ik zie nu pas dat het walvissen zijn, heel leuk! Op eerdere fotos zag ik ze aan voor strepen.

  5. Gorgeous marleen . Thanks so much for helping me:)

  6. wat een deugenietesnoet in die jurk :)

  7. Hoe leuk gevonden om een extra laag stof rond je paspel te doen!

  8. zo een schoon patroontje! En pràààchtige versies!

  9. Echt prachtig! Die 3/4 mouw is echt wel leuk.

  10. Zo'n leuk stofje! Ik ben minder voor het gesmockte gedeelte, maar de kraag en driekwart-mouwtjes maken alles goed :-)

  11. Dat kind is al prachtig in een topje-waarvan-de-elastiek-haar-beste-tijd-heeft-gehad, maar nog meer in dit schone kleedje! Ze ziet er zo groot uit :)

  12. Mooie combinatie van stof en kleurtjes, helemaal mijn ding!
