Sew Pony Vintage - Tic Tac Toe Dress Blog Tour

I was lucky enough to be chosen to pattern test Sew Pony Vintage’s new girls dress – the Tic Tac Toe Dress.

It comes with heaps of options too!! Piping, pockets, bodice lining, 4 different sleeve options,  a half peter pan collar, full peter pan collar, back tie...there are just so many combinations, it’s just fantastic!

I decided to sew up the dress with the half collar, back tie and rectangular sleeves in size 3.

Sewing & Bizarre Dreams = Awesome Kids Culottes

Pattern: Megan Nielsen Patterns – MN4203//Mini Tania Culottes

Fabric: 100% Premium Cotton Voile. Art Gallery Fabrics, Mojave Illuminated by Leah Duncan (Tule Collection)

The first night I start this trace out the pattern. My little one is only 2 and a half and the pattern goes up to 12 years, so I think I’ll be using this one more than once! So I trace out the pattern and lay down the fabric and pin the pattern pieces to it. I’m knackered so I go to bed. I have the weirdest dreams all night that I take the pattern pieces off and my beautiful soft voile has turned into the same hand feel as the tracing paper pattern pieces. I keep picking them up and scrunching them and they keep making rustling paper noises...it’s very weird... Anyway...I’m weird...the next morning I run down stairs and check that everything is as I left it before my bizarre dreams....it is...of course, so I proceed to cut out the pattern pieces. I luckily have half a day off the kids so I start sewing.

Sew Over It and the Prettiest Fabric in the Land

The Sew Over It – Ultimate Shift Dress is awesome. For starters it has so many variations you will never get bored of this pattern. You are literally spoilt for choice. To start, it gives you plenty of sleeve options. These include a set in sleeve (short, three quarter or full length), a sleeve frill or just sleeveless. It also gives you the option of adding a neck frill which looks really cute. The pattern also provides the option to make it into a top and a tunic. The size range is 8 – 20.  I totally recommend this pattern to a beginner seamstress. It has a lot of good sewing fundamentals like bust darts and neck facing which once mastered will help you to progress to intermediate patterns.
