Introducing another pretty Spring/Summer 2014 Ruffle Dress. This gorgeous fabric from Tanya Whelan, is on an ivory colored background this time, with various shades of large pink roses. It has a very vintage, girly feeling to it, and combined with the pink sash and shoulder ruffles, it makes a perfect party dress. Available in sizes NB-10, this dress can be worn to so many important events throughout the year. It is a must-have.
I get asked time and time again for off-white dresses from my customers. Beach photo sessions, weddings, communions, graduations, EASTER, and the list goes on and on. I like to have at least one neutral dress in the closet for that special occasion that requires something a little dressier. So here it is. The pink can be exchanged, to have a complete off white dress if you wish. The choice is completely yours. I can also make the sash and ruffles in a matching green print. Very refined and very pretty. Just send me an email at email@example.com.
So I spent the day asking myself whether this dress pattern is really going to be a hit like my EASTER dresses last year, and guess what? I realize that this dress does not accomodate a sweater or coat very easily. At least not without hiding all the important details. This creates a problem for most of my customers that live in the colder climates or are unsure of what the weather will bring us at the end of April. I am sorry I did not think of this sooner. It was the number one reason why I sewed a classic bodice last year versus peasant dresses. Not only could your child wear a t-shirt underneath the dress, but she could wear another sweater over the dress if need be. I understand. So this week, I will create a few alternative dresses that will be perfect for layering, and hopefully satisify the needs of those that are unsure what Spring will bring this year. If you have a request as far as peasant, classic bodice, or flutter sleeve dresses are concerned, be sure to comment below.
