I had an opportunity to sew a sample dress for a new Willow and Co. pattern last week, so I thought I’d take a minute to share some images with you.
The Limon Dress has some really sweet features, like the puffy sleeves and those neat pintucks, all in a row. The techniques used are just really elegant and leave you with an excellently crafted garment.
Elisa is the designer behind The Limon Dress, and she designs for Charming Doodle as well as for Willow & Co. This is the first pattern I’ve sewn from her, and I’m definitely looking forward to sewing more!
This was a great pattern to feature this almost flowery print from Shaman by Parson Gray and Free Spirit Fabrics. It’s called Visionary in Winter and I really think it does a great job of showing off the pintucks of the dress…especially when they are all lined up and gorgeous!
Which ALMOST didn’t happen because I thought the seam allowance was 1/8″ on the pintucks and didn’t realize my mistake until I did ALL 17 OF THEM and went to attach the back yoke to the back skirt piece. Whoops. I promise it’s an easier solution than it initially seemed.
This is my favorite image from this shoot. She’s turning into such the little artist. *le sigh*
