Stylo: Pink Gingham Blake Dress

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

It's been a week since Stylo was released, and I can say that I am still on cloud nine... WOW! If you haven't had a chance to read the latest version, you must check the mass amounts of talent and art flooded within the pages of this summer's Stylo. Again, I am honored to have been placed in such a high caliber of sewing and DIY bloggers. To know that Celina and Jessica trusted my artistic and sewing abilities is so amazing. Thank you again for having me contribute to Issue 4! With that, I have dedicated the next 4 days to each outfit I put together for the magazine. First up is the stunning lace and gingham Blake dress from Mingo and Grace. 

I honestly am in love with this pattern. Though Stylo was my first time using it, I am anticipating making a couple more for the girls, and adding a style or two into the shop (deets coming later!). When I was approached with making a "fruit inspired spread", I knew that pink had to be included. I also knew that Madison would want her dress to be fluffy, pink and oh so girly. So I figured I could get away with a "pink picnic" dress, and Blake was the first pattern on my list. Farrah was super helpful when suggesting what fabrics I should used to get the "body" I was looking for, and she was spot on. Thank you! The pattern is aesthetically pleasing, and the instructions were awesome. I have a fear of zippers (silly I know, but I loathe them) but Farrah included a great link to another site that guided me through the whole process. Super kudos for that :) In all Blake is a great pattern, and I cannot wait to make more.  

That necklace ya'll!?!? Doesn't it just scream "summer", "icecream" and "fun"? A fruit inspired outfit wouldn't be complete without a one of a kind, handmade necklace from the lovely Therese at Ena&Albert. When I was browsing her Etsy shop (if you haven't, you must check out all the handmade goodness and lovely colors of her beads) I had moused over the watermelon inspired  necklace and knew it had to be the center piece for the dress. I think it amounted to everything I imagined, and then some!!! Thank you again so much Therese for contributing! 

Size: 2T with 5T length
