building block dress book tour: sewing for four (plus one!)

Welcome to the Building Block Dress book tour! We’re kicking off the tour with Brittney who blogs at Sew for Four (Plus One!). She has contributed to the Oliver + S blog a lot and I mean a lot!

Where to begin? Let’s see, there’s her favorite pattern post, the Puppet Show shorts round-up and sew-along, and the Gallery Tunic sew-along.

She has also contributed five fantastic tutorials:

We’re starting off the book tour with a bang. Brittney didn’t sew just one dress, but several items! Go to her post on her blog to read all about them.

I have five kids, ranging from 11 to 2. I live in the southwest corner of Utah, a short drive from gorgeous national parks like Zion’s and Bryce Canyon or Las Vegas, depending on your preference. I haven’t been further east or north than Utah, apparently we are not much of a traveling family but when we do it is to the west coast.

My favorite fabric store is Raspberry Creek Fabric, I probably purchase 85% of my fabric there as she carries a wide range of substrates.

I taught myself to sew about five and a half years ago, just before I had my twins. My first sewing machine was actually my husband’s. He had one when we got married that he used to make simple repairs on his clothes and I eventually took it over. I have since upgraded and added a serger to my room. I love sewing with wovens, but don’t mind the instant gratification of a knit project.

Come back here on Friday when we’ll have the next book tour participant. See you then!

    What a great variety of dresses, and I love that each suits the specific girl so well. I have to try the elastic bell sleeve, gorgeous.
