Dress up this town – Dogwood with sleeves

Today I’ll show you something special. Something that I have planned since the release of Dogwood dress by Sew Like My Mom (link!). I have dreamed about this high-low maxi with long sleeves and I asked Melissa for some advice. She recommended using Posey tunic (link!) or Pistachio tee (link!) sleeves. I decided to go with Posey sleeves because I just like cuffed sleeves.
Since DD is short I shortened the maxi about 3.5cm and decided to not do facing and just overlocked the edge 🙂

From spring to summer

I have to say, this post was actually meant to be showcasing things I have made for myself, but I managed to get pneumonia. Pneumonia with 40C fever so let’s just say this ain’t going to happen although I am now on a getting better road. As you can think, one week high fever also messed up all my sewing plans so here I am, kinda in a trouble, but let’s just say, blogger always tries to find her way out.
So today I am telling you about our transitioning from spring to summer. To be honest, our springs are cold and summers are not really warm either. So this brings us to a problem, what to wear? When before sewing I would have struggled with clothing DD as there is never weatherapproriate clothing in the stores now I have no problem with her. She has a style of her own so sometimes things are not going the way I want to and I have to try something on her numerous times before she agrees to wear something 🙂 This is exactly how it went with the Twig + Tale Pixie shorts (link!*) I added detachable bow and when at the beginning she didn’t like the shorts she is now loving them. Since most of the time it is still pretty coldish here she wears shorts with tights. And layers, tons of layers to change troughout day depending on the weather. So now I’ll show you the Pixies in different situations just because I can and we both love them!

Color me lucky – Pantone spring ’17

pantone spring 2017.jpg
When I was trying to decide, which Pantone 2017 color to pick I had struggles. I wanted to pick Pale Dogwood or Hazelnut for myself, but at the same time thought about fabric I have in my stash. I came to a conclusion that I need to use my pretties from my inventory, so I decided to choose that beautiful green sweat I had. So I decided that greenery will be the color for this tour. Fabric chosen, now onto pattern. I only had 1m of it so something for me wasn’t going to happen, instead I had to choose something for DD. I thought until I saw her new love for her dolly and suddenly an idea came to my mind. What if I make them kinda matching outfits. A joggers and a hat. So there I was, trying to find a pattern for this smaller than usual doll. I remembered that I had Juniper joggers from Striped Swallow Designs and this has both dollie and DD size. Then there was question of hats, Dollies hat is Petite Stitchery & co free beanie in size doll, but since it is getting warmer I wanted something lighter for DD. I remembered that I have the Slouchy Beanie by Heidi & Finn, so hers is this, size 6m-2y.
Long story short – patterns chosen, fabric chosen, time to print and cut. All of the patterns were easy to print and tape (all except Heidi & Finn has layers). I cut them out and started serging. Then came the first problem. Juniper joggers size 2T inseams are different length!
All of the patterns I have gotten for free so total bargain! 😀

So here she is, in her beautiful greenery joggers and Bunny hat, made out of softest summer sweat I have ever touched!
