I have to admit I have a bit of a blogger crush on Karly of Paisley Roots.
I really like all the things she makes for her kids. And I love the design of her first pattern, the Saffron Twirl dress*, so when I saw her tester call for her newest dress I jumped right on it!
Meet the All Spice dress*.
|PATTERN: ALL SPICE DRESS BY PAISLEY ROOTS | FABRIC: WOODLAND TAILS BY RILEY BLAKE, PURCHASED FROM FABRIC.COM|
Lots of options are packed into this dress.
Long, cap, or flutter sleeves, or sleeveless.
Originally I was going to make a long sleeve version but I didn’t have a chance (I made a booboo). So I went with sleeveless since it’s easily layerable. (Is that even a word?)
Zipper or button front closure.
I did zipper, it’s a lot faster than buttons honestly, and not too scary to do. Although, make sure you’re paying attention to how you’re pinning your zipper on otherwise you end up with a backwards zipper. (That might or might not have happened to me…)
The pattern comes in sizes 6-12 months to 12 years. I sewed up the 12-18 months size.
We had fun with this mini photo shoot. Big sister Silly Bean was running around the yard trying to catch butterflies and the weather was just perfect! I took so many pictures that I couldn’t choose my favourites so this post is very pic heavy!
