BurdaStyle Girl's Strap Dress

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

This month's BurdaStyle Influencer post features the Girl's Strap Dress which is part of the recently released Welcome to Greece Collection. This pattern is great for showcasing light, breezy fabrics like this embroidered cotton from my local shop. Since the dress is fully lined, the slight sheerness of the fabric didn't matter. It's so perfect for the hot summer days and Anja now wants to wear this dress everyday!

Project Run & Play Shop Blog Tour

Thursday, July 12, 2018

Have you heard about the new shop over at Project Run & Play? Past participants designs have become patterns that are now available for purchase. Now you can shop for those amazing designs all in one place! There are 17 patterns in the shop and new ones will be added as designers continue to create them. 

As part of the Grand Opening celebration, select patterns will be featured in a blog tour and available on sale for the whole month of July. I had the opportunity to sew the Squared Away Tunic & Dress by Winter Wear Designs.

This pattern is a clean lined classic piece that is great for year round wear.  With options of short sleeve or 3/4 sleeve you have coverage for all temperatures.  The square front neck and pleated skirt keep the lines simple with great detail.  The skirt has a high low hem line and can be made in a dress length or as a tunic to pair with jeans, jeggings, or leggings.  The dress length is designed to hit above the knee in front and below the knee in back.

I made the dress with some double gauze purchased from my local fabric shop in a size 5 lengthened to a size 7. The fit is great and I love the pleats and hemline. The pieced neckline really allows for some creativity in pairing different fabrics, although I used the same fabric for this particular dress. 

To celebrate the grand opening of the shop, you can get 20% off all dress patterns. Sales in the shop won't happen often, so make sure to grab some patterns at a discount during the Daily Inspiration Pattern Tour while you can!
There is also a giveaway (ending August 1) with some fantastic prizes! There will be five (random) winners for the following prizes:
$50 gift certificate to DH Fabrics and Co.
