The Summer Social Dress {free tutorial and pattern size 2 & 6}

2 May

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFun, flirty, and summer-y sweet~ This is what I had in mind when I created The Summer Social Dress.  I am so pleased to finally be able to show you this dress,  I have been working on it for awhile now!   The fabric is the new line by Tasha Noel for Riley Blake Designs “Little Red Riding Hood”.  Riley Blake had sent me a good sampling of this line for a tutorial I am writing for their Cutting Corner’s College (publish date May 27th).  I had enough left over to create this gorgeous dress – the exact fabrics are Little Scallops Aqua, and Little Floral White.   The aqua and red color scheme is gorgeous and the little characters are too cute!  I had an elaborate outdoor Spring photo shoot in mind but alas the unpredictable Alberta weather did not cooperate!  Can you believe it snowed on April 29th, I had planned to take the pictures on April 30th.  I just could not ask my sweet little models to go outside in -6 celsius weather in these summer outfits.  I was kind of bummed to take the pictures indoors.  I had an entire pictorial in my mind; a story to go along with the dress. Then I had a bright idea.  Why not make my own computerized spring scene and put my models inside?  So now I give you the Summer Social Dress.  Click here for easy printable instructions and pattern: Summer Social Dress

Too cute, right?  The dress is very easy to make and I think any girl would love to wear it.  You can also make it as a summer-y top instead – like these pictures:

If you need a different size, you could probably grade the pattern up or down using a garment that fits your child as a sizing guide.  Go to her blog for the pattern and tutorial. […]
