I’ve loved Bella Sunshine Designs for a long time now, and they’ve been making and selling knit patterns mostly lately, which I think is what’s most in demand. I know my girls aren’t very excited to wear woven much. So, even though I enjoy sewing with woven, and love the styles that are available, if it’s not an incredibly comfortable design, the woven pieces will sit in the closet forever! My oldest has been needing more dresses lately, and I knew this Sunday Sunshine sale was the push I needed to make her a new one!
This is the Clementine pattern. It includes:
-Sizes 6 months to girls 12.
-Top, dress, and maxi lengths.
-Sleeveless, short, 3/4, and long sleeves.
-Banded/color blocked skirt in dress and maxi lengths.
I’ve made the tank version before, but since we’re heading into fall, I knew she would need at least 3/4 sleeves. Maybe this way, she can get away with wearing it a couple of times while it’s still warm!
You can make a tank top for summer, or a long sleeve dress or maxi for winter. This is a great all seasons pattern!
And it’s a quick sew! Of course, if you make the banded skirt, it will be a few more steps, but still a simple sew. I love the thorough way Melissa designs these patterns. There are separate pieces for the bodice main, and the bodice lining, so the lining will pull to the inside, and never show. Plus, the tutorial has detailed grading and fitting advice, and the instructions are clear! I never regret sewing one of these patterns.
