Sew Americana Blog Tour

Happy Almost 4th of July Everyone!  My kids love this holiday so when I heard there was a Sew Americana blog tour being organized I realized that I had to beg my way in!  So welcome to my post for the Sew Americana Blog Tour!

I thought about doing a simple red, white and blue theme but then the Diva found the fabrics of her dreams from Hobby Lobby. As soon as I saw the choices I knew the perfect pattern! Simple Life Pattern Company released Molly’s Scoop Collar and Pintuck Top, Dress and Maxi not very long ago.  I have sewn this pattern a few times but I had never just done the simple version.

I have officially declared this one my go to pattern! The whole dress from printed pattern to finished product took me just over an hour and I may have lost some minutes to my newest Netflix addiction, Criminal Minds…

So, a few details about Molly that I need to share.  It runs from a size 2t to a size 12 in girls. Never fear, adorable baby mommas, there is a Baby Molly’s pattern that is so adorable I almost want another one! Almost… Anyway, the pattern has the layers feature so you can print just the size you need and cut quickly.  And for a little extra twirl I cut my skirt pieces at WOF and fiddled with the seam allowance so I don’t even have to be concerned with fraying or finishing.  Throw 2 snaps on the back and off we go!

The scoop is probably my favorite part on her and she loves the high neck in front. It makes her feel “official”, her words….

  1. I do love the drastic difference between the front and back of the bodice. It’s so sweet and the fabrics are perfect for your little gal. I would totally rock this dress myself!
