I was lucky enough to be selected to test the newest pattern from Elegance and Elephants - the Bohemian Babydoll Dress. I first saw pictures on Instagram and knew that this was one that would be a hit with my kid.
The sewing took maybe a couple of hours. The fabric and embroidery selection - well, that took WAY too long!
When I saw the pattern, it just reminded me of summer. I wanted to use something that reminded me of summer on Cape Cod....well, this plaid that I had in my stash from long ago totally worked. I believe I used it to make a shirt from my son back in the day. I had a teeny bit of lightweight denim leftover from the first dress I made Julia when I finally got a new sewing machine - I think she was about 18 months old. Then, the embroidery choosing.....I went back to the Urban Threads website - my new absolute favorite source for designs (now that I've figured out how to download to my machine).
This is a size 4 with 5 length. According to the pattern release, she made some tweaks to the bodice size and neckline size. My kid loves the way it fits, but I may try it again with a size 3 bodice (and the same length).
A seriously cute pattern - I can also see this in corduroy, with a turtleneck under it in the fall.....thanks to Heidi for letting me test!
