If you knew how awesome Tash is, you'd totally get my gushing, beaming, pride while writing this post! We met about 3.5 years ago after I bought one of her makes in a showcase. We discovered she was only 10 min away from me so she suggested I come pick the parcel up. When I got there I discovered she had a daughter the same age as mine and a son the same age as my littlest. The rest as they say, is history!
Over the last few years we have become good friends and she has become an important and incredibly supportive part of my life. So you can forgive me for being so cheesy and absolutely bursting with love for her very first pattern release.
I’ve always loved her style. A touch of vintage mixed with sass and Bellevue doesn't disappoint! It's practical and cute with a little bit of a vintage feel. I love the side panels for the dress, which takes it from a pinafore style to an actual dress style as you don't need to pop a t-shirt or blouse under for older kids.
My 5 yo loves her twirly dress with a "fluffle" at the bottom. It's such a perfect dress for showing off an embroidery panel or a small piece of your favourite fabric - I used a vintage embroidered table cloth for this one and paired it with some lovely "linen look" fabric from Dizzy Daisy Fabrics
I'm sure your girls will love twirling in their Bellevue Dresses <3 and if you've got a bubba or a girl who still loves rompers, there is a baby version of this pattern that has a romper bottom which includes a snap panel - perfect for a quick nappy change or toilet stop!
The low down on sizes: 12m-14 for the dress and NB to 4 for the romper, this pattern covers everyone!
You're enjoy this sew, I promise <3
