TDD Coral dress and top

Let me tell you. Once you have tasted from the fruit that is “testing patterns for designers” there is no going back. I. AM. Addicted. I had the pleasure of testing the newest pattern for Jen Hagedorn of Tie Dye Diva, the Coral dress and top. We just LOVE this dress. It has some major twirl action. IMG_5070The femininity of the dress really speaks to my daughter’s taste in fashion. She will only wear a dress that is “fancy.” Translation: twirls, has a bow or ruffle, or makes her feel like a princess. This dress most definitely makes her feel like a princess. She very much fits the part. IMG_5087 9.09.35 AMThis pattern has a lovely shirred bodice and has three different sleeve options: cap (which is what I chose), shirred on both sides of the sleeve, flutter, which is shirred on only one side, and spaghetti ties. All of the choices are lovely. And the apron is optional, but not for us. Aprons are never optional… The pattern can be made into a dress or a top and comes equipped with the standard easily read and understood, easy to put together tutorial that Jen of Tie Dye Diva so flawlessly nails. Every time. Every pattern.IMG_5076If you are new to sewing (or not, I am an intermediate sewer and still enjoy her patterns), Tie Dye Diva patterns are the perfect place to start off. And you will continue to come back to her patterns again and again.
