Welcome to my stop on the Peek A Boo Pattern tour and pattern giveaway!!
Introducing my version of The Jasmine.
A one shoulder dress with a clever tie to keep the dress on securely. Very important for 10 year olds by the way !
A simple and perfect style for summer.
Plus, it’s a one bobbin dress. From start to finish this dress took me less than three hours. So it’s perfect for a beginner….
I sewed this up in a cotton chambray in size 8. I bought a lot of chambray last season and love the casual but elegant feel it gives a garment.
Lily wears a size 10 or 12 in ready to wear clothing so this pattern is quite generous in sizing, similar to big 4 sizes. If I make another for Lily, I will narrow the pattern a bit. It’s a wee bit voluminous for her.
Amy who also blogs about sewing and crafting at Naptime Crafters is the designer and creator of Peek A Boo Patterns. She has a knack for explaining the sewing process in an easy , simple, and understandable way. I enjoy her patterns. That’s probably why this is the third I have tried.
This is also a good style for an older girl as it’s stylish and not too babyish.
Here are two more of her patterns I’ve made from Peek A Boo.
Disclosure: I was given this pattern to review but my opinions are my own.
