Snapdragon Dress + Giveaway!

Since I have a house full of boys, I jump at the chance to make dresses for my nieces. My lovely friend Melissa from Sew Like My Mom sent me her new Snapdragon Dress pattern, and if I had girls, I’m pretty sure this is all I would make them.

If you’re a regular reader, you know how much I love Melissa’s patterns, and oh my goodness, I am in looooove with this one.

This dress is super versatile – there’s the tank version that I sewed, but you can also choose from three different sleeve options. This pattern is so perfect for every season!

I love all the gathers … even though I hate the actual gathering process. ;)

I used a fabulous double knit from JoAnn’s that I’ve seen in a few different colorways. The polka dots are on one side and the stripes are on the other, so I mixed and matched throughout the dress. If I hadn’t started making this dress (ahem) the night before we left to visit, I would have hacked the pattern a bit to make this dress reversible. But I guess now I just have to make another one!

The knit is so soft and the design of the pattern is made for girls who love to run and play, my niece actually wore it for 48 hours! I’m all about making clothes that kids can play in, and this dress perfect for it.

Even when playing means waiting for your cousins to move out of the way, so you can bike through.

This might be my go-to dress pattern for the little girls in my life!

  1. SWEET as can be– your niece looks so COOL in this simple sundress you’ve sewn! Love the mix of green & navy as well as the mix of tiny dots for sleeveless top & horizontal stripes for the empire gathered skirt. Fab photo shoot –she’s darling picking raspberries & flowers in the garden. Love the photo of her “resting” on the trike, after playing and playing!

  2. I love your fabric choice. I have been waiting to get the pattern since my daughter still fits in the free size.

I'd love to hear what YOU think
