Last week I was able to test a new pattern by Jess from Gracious Threads, which she's releasing today as part of the Aspiring Designer's Summer Challenge.
The pattern is called the Seashore Dress, Top & Tunic. I did the straight skirt tunic option - in all there are five variations. Here's her description of the pattern:
This is a versatile pattern with 3 lengths and 2 skirt styles. The lace covered yoke and dainty cap sleeves can go from play to dress up, and the simple skirt design is perfect for showcasing special fabrics!
Fabric: The yoke is a cotton/poly blend eyelet with an underlining of white cotton and the skirt is a fat quarter of quilter's cotton (actually one we all were given at our quilt retreat this year!)
As usual with Gracious Threads patterns, it printed well and the directions were straightforward and clear. Aside from some fabric melting issues (cotton/poly blends when I'm used to good quality quilter's cotton), this little top was a breeze to put together. I used size 16 polyresin snaps at the shoulders instead of buttons, making it even easier.
Jess has graciously offered a copy of the Seashore Dress, Top & Tunic pattern to one of you! Enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below for a chance to win this sweet and versatile pattern.
