Happy Friday! The sun is shining. My big Fall gardening jobs have all been tackled before the forecast for rain this weekend - yay! Rain = sewing time!
Awhile ago, I saw the Pearl dress pattern on Rae's blog. The first one was the Gingham Pearl dress, seen here. I knew right away I wanted to make one for myself! The second one was a Corduroy Pearl dress, seen here. The latest is the Henley version, seen here in Bespoke double gauze. Love them all.
Here's my first make of the Pearl dress, in a tencel chambray (I think) that I bought locally.
I actually did not make any buttonholes as I can pull this over my head, so the buttons are simply decorative for this. (I avoid buttonholes as my machine is very unpredictable!) I do like the Henley version and I can see making a top out of this. I am sure there's another Pearl dress in the future.
There have been a lot of new pattern releases lately. I bought Marilla's Roberts Collection and I want to make the dungarees dress. I saw that Jen has released the Tamarack jacket. Wow, I really like this though the quilting part scares me a bit. Today, I bought the West Water Tunic pattern. The minute I saw it I knew I had to have it - that neckline! These are but three of many, many lovely new patterns of late!
Is there a new pattern release calling your name?
Happy weekend. May you get to sneak in some sewing time!
