Hello ladies and gents . It is with such excitement that I bring you this new blog post . A fellow sew sis (Sarah Yuhr ) with Sew Much Charm creations reached out to me to be apart of this blog tour with the goal in mind of sharing my favorite spring pattern and hands down I choose the Carolina Crossover dress by Rebecca Page patterns .
I choose this pattern as my favorite for so many reasons but here are just a few . This pattern comes in #midilength as well as #maxilength . It also has three different sleeve options and it's designed for knits. If that doesn't sell you on trying this pattern one thing I loved the most and above all was the crossover . I knew right away I wanted to colorblock this dress once I saw this .
I had been hoarding this floral gray fabric (unforgetable in gray by Sly Fox fabrics )for sometime and felt it would be the perfect combination to pair with a rose pink jersey knit (found on Etsy) that I had . This pattern had two options for the waistband . One is flat and the other was runched . Since I haven't made many dresses with a runched waist I was anxious to see how it would look and when I made it I was pleased with how flattering it was . Because besides who wants to bring attention to the belly right ? lol. We don't add to our waist we want to take away lol. So indeed I was shocked in a good way . *inserts happy dance*
I will like say through all of my years of sewing I find m greatest reward in challenging myself to try something new . So never allow uncertainty to try new things , you might be surprise on how it pays off for you . After I completed this sew I was over the moon when I was asked to be the model for the cover photo on the pattern . * cue the confetti* lol..lol.
Below you can find my #afflink the this pattern if you decide to try your hand in it . Or you may find something else that catches your attention and find a spring favorite of your own .
