A Tinny dress

October 15, 2015


I am a big fan of the Belgian blog StraightGrain, written by my friend An.  An has just re released her Tinny pattern with a multitude of options! I helped An out a little with reviewing her pattern and helping with some of the line drawings of the pattern options. Of course I had to sew up a new Tinny because all the versions I have seen on An's blog are so lovely!


I made Emily the extended sleeve version with peter pan collar and gathered skirt. There are so many other variations - collars, sleeves and skirts that this pattern can be used multiple times with a different dress each time.


The fabric I used for this dress is a lovely cotton lawn called Garden Floral in Harvest by Lennox Gardens in lawn. It is a  Robert Kaufman print which was kindly sponsored by Hawthorne Threads. I love the vintage style of the floral. Unfortunately, I may have used one of the last pieces of this fabric from Hawthorne Threads as this fabric is no longer in print. I found a similar Kaufman floral here.


I took around fifty photos of Emily in this dress this evening, but most of them looked something like this...


 So I was left with only a few that were blog worthy!



To get your copy of the amazing Tinny dress, head over to StraightGrain - An has a discount code over there too as well as many versions of this pattern to inspire you!
