Charlotte Dress & Top


Here I am again, on the last day of a pattern’s release sale, finally blogging about it! 🙂 I just love this pattern though! This is the Charlotte Dress & Top from Bella Sunshine Designs. Once again, this is an impeccably put together pattern. The final product is fun and stunning!

This is for woven fabric, and comes in sizes 6m-12y. You can make a top or dress, or add length even, to make a maxi dress! I used snaps on the back of mine, but you can also use buttons.

This light purple fabric came from a scrap from that box that was passed on to me. It was a little flimsy, but I love the color. And the skirt is cut from one of my favorite vintage sheets.

I paired this with the Rose Bubble shorts, also from Bella Sunshine Designs. I think it’s the perfect pairing for this! The Charlotte Pattern is a whopping half off for release, so make sure you don’t miss the sale pricing!! It’s only $5. But that sale ends today, July 25th!

Violet Flounce Top & Dress

This is a new pattern from Bella Sunshine Designs. I made this quite a while ago now, but for 4738958076345 different reasons, I’m finally able to blog about it! Bonus, it’s still on sale!! 🙂

This is for knit fabrics. It has top and dress options, beautiful double straps, and the flounce is optional! I made the green floral from ITY, the white one is cotton lycra in front, and stretch crochet lace in back, and the navy blue one I’m wearing is also ITY.

Mama and me matching patterns are my FAVORITE. The women’s version has two bodice options, one for A-C cup sizes, and one for D+ cup sizes. This is a huge help because I don’t like the extra step of having to do my own FBA.

I’ve found Bella Sunshine Designs patterns to be well drafted, meticulously edited, straightforward, clean construction, and I highly recommend them!

Girls Violet Flounce Top & Dress is on sale for $7, Ladies is on sale for $9, or Bundle both of them for $12!

Also, the red shorts are the new Rose Bubble Shorts from Bella Sunshine Designs, and the pink ones are some knit shorts I made last summer from Made for Mermaids Olivia Bloomers pattern.

Now you can enjoy a photo overload!
