This is the first time I've ever sewn a Figgy's pattern. It feels sacrilegious to say so. I was flattered when Shelly asked asked me to be part of her Heavenly Collection Winter Tour. This collection of children's sewing patterns is just lovely. The designs are unique, but so wearable. I really hate patterns that just look like everyone else's. I mean, why bother, right?
I can't wait to show you the Ethereal Dress & Blouse pattern that I sewed up for my daughter, Jane. The pattern has a multitude of options; sleeves or sleeveless, blouse, tunic, or dress lengths, and a darling frill.
The fabric I chose is a Yuwa cotton lawn from the imagine gnats shop. It also feels wrong to admit that this is the first time I've ever sewn with cotton lawn. Holy moly, it is just so so lovely. It's just the finest, smoothest, softest cotton I've ever felt. It's the cotton you want to be wearing on murderously hot days, and on warm spring afternoons when the sun is setting on your shoulders. I could wax poetic about it for days.
The Ethereal Dress & Blouse pattern is generously sized and a quick sew. I cut a 4/5 for Jane intentionally slightly larger than she measured to ensure she would be able to still be wearing it at the end of this summer. That girlie grows like a weed. Right now she'll wear it with a tee and leggings until the weather warms. Really Jane refused to take her dress off following the photo shoot.
I'm jealous I don't have a cotton lawn Ethereal Dress in my size. Also, this girl is just slaying me. I love her character.
