Now on to today's stops on the tour:
Up first we have Aurelie of Maglice&So showing off her take on the Boho Breeze. Aurelie joins us all the way from France, and I love how she always brings some 'je ne sais quoi' to her sewing. Read all about this outfit and all her other sewing adventured on her Facebook Page.
Next up we have Rachel of Violets and Jewels sharing her version of the Magnolia. Rachel sews for herself and her two girls and has been testing and blogging at WWD for years - if you are new to Rachel's work, go skim through her blog and prepare to have your mind blown!!! You can see all of Rachel's pictures and read all about this sewing adventure on her blog.
Donnisha is joining us for this first time in our Summertime Blog Tour - everyone wave hello and welcome her to our blogging team!!! Donnisha is also sharing the Boho Breeze today and is guest posting here on the blog.
This week, I had the pleasure of sewing up the Boho Breeze Romper and Dress by Winter Wear Designs. This pattern includes many fun options. I decided to sew up a short sleeve maxi dress version. You can find this pattern and fourteen others on sale during Winter Wears Summertime Sale for only $4!
The skirt is made in Florence stretch woven from Surge Fabric Shop. This is a sophisticated polyester woven fabric with stunning drape and a gorgeous washed linen like texture. It boasts 20% horizontal stretch for comfort and ease which, as you know, isn't common with woven! It is a nice medium weight and is very easy to work with. I won 2 yards of this stretch woven in Surge's new fabric release back in May. The Florence fabric is available in 8 different colors. I used the cobalt color for this skirt but I have my eye on the cherry red color for more skirts.
The top is made from a rayon spandex that I purchased on a b/s/t page on Facebook. Note to self, avoid these pages because you buy more fabric than you have time to sew. When I saw the combination together I knew that they would be perfect for this dress.
I made the neckline a little tighter so that I could still wear a bra if I needed to with the dress. The pattern was easy to follow and the sizing perfect. I like that I could choose one size for the shirt and a different one for the skirt. The results are beautiful and I can't wait to show it off to everyone. My only regret is that I didn't add the inseam pockets. This dress has me summer ready.
Every year I make Mack a 4th of July outfit... it's become a bit of a tradition, and my girl loves traditions. Luckily for me, I had the perfect new pattern in testing to create this year's look.
The Girl's Endless Summer Shorts will be releasing next week, and if you've noticed how much I and my bloggers love the adult version of this pattern, you are going to fall equally in love with the girl's version.
Mack wanted a tank top to go with her new shorts, so I whipped up a quick tank inspired by the women's Omega Pattern, and she loves it. YAY!
This is still my little girl, but she is growing up fast, and she is quickly starting to lean towards more mature styles. I'm so glad that I can sew and create outfits she likes that make us both happy. I've truly gotten to watch my girl grow up in the things I've made her and I hope that is a tradition we can keep going for many more years to come.
