One of my favorite things its the Simple Life Patterns Company Holiday blog tour. I’ve been honored to be on this tour for a few years, and they are some of my favorite makes to look back on!
My very first pattern from SLPCo was Ayda. I bought it when I was pretty new to Pdf patterns, and pretty new to sewing. I was not in the testing and promoting world yet, where you kind of get patterns for free by the gobs and gobs! So it was a big deal to actually purchase a pattern. You know I loved it!
Now I’ve made so many of their gorgeous designs, and I love that they’re classic, but unique! And comfortable! My girls have lived in so many of them!
For this blog tour, I mashed two new to me patterns. I couldn’t resist the full ruffled skirt from the Opal’s pattern, and then I spent a LONG time looking through their website to decide which bodice to pair it with. Molly is one of the originals, but that deep scoop just kept calling my name. It’s so elegant, and a little dramatic!
Art Gallery has been a favorite for me to work with this year, and they generously sponsored this dress. I have eyed this print for a long time, and finally had the perfect occasion to use it!
I love that this dress fits my 10 year old’s style, while still making my ruffle-loving heart happy. ❤
I’m serious, even if your big girl says she hates ruffles, make her something like this, and she won’t be able to resist it once she puts it on!
You will be so inspired with the rest of the dresses on this tour, and you can grab all their patterns on sale, too, with the code HappyHolidays. It’s the last sale of the year!!
