I had such good intentions for my post for the “New Sews for the New Year” blog tour, and then of course life happened! I am currently on vacation, and our wi-fi access is not the best. Also, for some reason I can’t get access to the pictures I intended to use for this blog post. While I wish I had them, I still wanted to write about some new sewing things that I have started in the new year.
I am so excited that Jennifer from Annelaine patterns
has asked me to work with her as a testing coordinator! I love Annelaine patterns, but more importantly Jennifer is such a nice person who is dedicated to making her sewing patterns amazing! The Tammy dress is the latest pattern from Annelaine, and it was the first test the I worked as the coordinator for.
The Tammy dress
(named in memory of Jennifer’s mother) comes in sizes 9 months – 20 (girls), as well as for 15″ and 18″ dolls! It has the following options:
- Lined or Unlined Bodice
- Circle or Gathered Skirt
- Peplum and Tunic Lengths
- Cuffed Sleeves
- Optional Sleeve Tabs
- Multiple Back Strap Options
I was so upset when I realized I didn’t have the pictures of my daughter and her doll in their dresses. Normally when I download the pictures from my camera to my computer, they delete off the memory card. I decided to check the camera, just in case the pictures would still be there. I was surprised to see one photo still on the camera. I’m not sure why that one photo was still there, and not all of the others, but I was glad to have at least one photo to share with you (even if it was not the best one). So here is my Tammy dress:
This is the lined bodice, circle skirt and in the back there are the criss-cross straps. There are so many cute dresses that the testers made of this dress! You can see some of them here.
I hope you all are enjoying some sewing in 2018! Here are the rest of the blog who are sharing about their “New Sews in the New Year.”
Pattern: The Tammy dress from Annelaine patterns.
Fabric: The bodice is made of french terry from So Sew English and the skirt and straps are made from a triblend knit from Knitpop.
