Hey everyone! Michelle here, sharing the Amaryllis dress I sewed up.
Can I just tell you, I LOVE THIS PATTERN??!! It is my favorite so far, of all the Blank Slate patterns I have sewn up. It is not your typical dress, by any means. I had no idea where it was going, but I am in love with where it went!
Firstly, it is reversible!! Essentially, this means two dresses in one. How awesome is that?!
BTW: please excuse my daughter’s pinky finger. It was broken, but we unwrapped it for the photos, and it just stuck out like that.
The fabric I used is from the Birch Organics Mod Basics 3 collection. The Navy is called Firefly Dots Dusk, and the mustard colored one is called Wink Marigold. Dreamy fabric to go with this dreamy pattern.
The pattern goes from18m-size 8. I hope one day Melissa will make this in MY size. But for now, you can make one for your little girl to twirl in. And twirl she will! The dress has great twirl-ability.
The back closes with a button, so no zips to install or even buttonholes!
The whole dress goes on like a secured wrap dress. There really is no danger of being exposed. This one has you covered.
The only difficult thing is choosing which side to wear.
The one time consuming (but completely worth it) component to this pattern is hemming the circle skirt portion of the dress. I just followed the instructions, and went slowly. It came out beautifully. No wrinkles or anything! I was impressed.
I did not deviate from this pattern because there wasn’t anything I would do differently!
Thank you, Melissa. I cannot wait to sew up another.
