more apple-picking

I know many of you love getting to see our sewing patterns made up in different fabrics to help you imagine which fabrics you’ll choose for your sewing projects. So here are some additional views of the Apple-Picking Dress made by our testers. Thanks, testers!

This little dress was sewn by Melani using Moda’s New of Jewels fabric, which is a lovely cross-dyed fabric that is no longer available. Melanie accurately describes it as heavier than a quilting cotton, more like a mid-weight linen, and said it sewed up beautifully. I love the color, and it’s awfully sweet on this little honey.

Aprli (you know April, right? She writes the nicest posts for us.) made this gorgeous version for her daughter using linen. She combined the long sleeves from View B with the second ruffle from View A and lengthened the skirts a bit so they end just below the knee.

And Jan made a polka dotted version for her little one. I think they’re both awfully cute (the dress and her daughter).

All these photos show the double-ruffled skirt from View A, and I know many of you are clamoring to see View B with the single ruffle. I’ll try to dig up some photos to show you soon!

    Beautiful! where can I find the pattern? I went over the patterns link and I cannot find it anywhere.

    1. Silvia, that is one of our new fall styles. We will be releasing it next week at which point it will appear on the website.
