I am actually really excited to chat about this one. There is something really exciting about being part of the pre-testing and testing process for a designer's first pattern. It also give a cool glimpse into the designer and what they are like. Annemieke of Sofilantjes is such a sweet woman. She put so much time tweaking and re-tweaking and making sure everything was perfect with the fit on the dress. She even added a skinny sizing to it so that it would be easy to fit for all girls.

How cool is that?? Inara totally loves it. The lower back stays nicely in place with the bow detail that is added to it. I wish this came in my size!
The binding on the dress is done using knit binding (I used ribbing for mine), BUT on the blue one, I decided to be wild and tried it with some FOE. And it totally works. You need to attach the bow slightly different in the back, as the FOE doesn't have the seam that the binding does, but otherwise it works perfectly. I used a cute scalloped edged FOE which gave the dress a really sweet look.
If you haven't picked up the pattern yet, run over to the Sofilantjes Craftsy Shop and grab for $6.30 while it is 30% of. The sale ends REALLY soon. Grab it now, and you can whip up a red/white/blue in time for Memorial Day!
