This is another installment in the Summer of Woven from Patterns for Pirates! This one is an update to one of their older patterns, the Sweet Bow Dress. And the mega bow is everything!!! I made 2 versions. One dress length, and one maxi. There is also a top length included, and a small bow, or the mega bow. I did mega, OF course.
This pattern had a few fit issues tweaked, and I am so happy with the fit that they achieved. The blue dress is one of the earlier versions.
This blue version was fun to make because it was another piece of fabric I got from my friend that I shared about a few weeks ago. It’s fun to have fresh fabric in your stash, and I hope it’s fun for my friends to see their fabric having a new life!
The maxi version was added towards the end of testing, and it is perfect for this style! I used georgette for my skirt, which my daughter loves. She wore this maxi dress to church the Sunday after I made it!
The pattern will be on sale for the re-release for $7.50. You can find many more photos on larger and smaller sizes in the listing. You will love this! It is a quick sew too, even though I didn’t think it would be. It’s straightforward, and there are only TWO pages to print for all sizes!! #YES
This sweet dress will is a favorite in my house for sure!!
