Kids' Clothes Week: Debbie's Brithday Dress pattern update

October 21, 2013


Over the past week I have spent lots of time revising my pattern - Debbie's birthday dress.  I released this pattern a few months ago, and after seeing lots of lovelv versions made up around the blogosphere, I decided that although I loved how the dresses came up, that a few modifications would make me even happier with the pattern I was putting out there for people to sew.  They are listed below...


So with dress modifications, of course I had to re-sew my pattern.  This colourful dress has no front seams, which I think suits this fabric best.  This uninterrupted A-line view can easily be achieved by simply subtracting the seam allowance from the front dress piece of view 2 of the pattern and placing the pattern piece on the fold.

 
I love this fabric paired with this pattern.  It's a cotton drill I picked up last week at Spotlight.  I bought it before I knew what I was doing with it.  It was perfect for another Debbie dress.
 

I am posting this dress during Kids' Clothes Week, but I will admit I sewed it up last week, but wanted to wait until my pattern was ready to go before blogging about it.  I will be uploading it to the Kids' Clothes Week site and having a look at what everyone else has been up to.

 
You can purchase my pattern from my sewpony vintage etsy shop for only $5AUD until October 31st (regular price is $8 AUD).  No discount codes needed.
 
You may see a few Debbie's birthday dresses popping up this week.  Some blogging friends have are kindly helping me out with sewing up the revised pattern and sharing their creations this week for Kids' Clothes Week.  Thanks guys! And I can't wait to see them all!!
