Sunday Picnic Dress by SewPony Vintage

From the Archives

I am so excited to be a part of this blog tour for this adorable dress!

 I had so much fun sewing this dress up, and even though I've bought patterns from sewpony vintage, I hadn't sewn them yet (I may or may not have a problem when it comes to buying patterns--but who can resist their adorable vintage styling?)

I was so excited to picked as a tester, even though I was cutting it close because we were leaving in a few days for our house-hunting trip.  Luckily,the Sunday picnic dress is a breeze to create--even with a lined bodice and invisible zipper.  The pattern pieces are easy to assemble, instructions are very thorough, and pictures are very clear. I had it sewn up in no time.  And, I'm embarrassed to admit this, but in all my years of sewing, I had never done pockets.  Pockets!  I know.  But guess what, they are super easy and SO cute.

We were assigned the long-sleeve, collared view which was perfect because Giselle doesn't have very many Fall/Winter options.  I picked a smaller-overall, muted pattern for the fabric.  I wanted something mature and simple since she is the oldest size range.  I added contrasting cuffs since I am a sucker for contrast and cuffs.  Giselle didn't originally want buttons (they are just a design detail since the dress zips in back) but I liked my quirky cluster there.  This would be a great dress to showcase those fancy buttons!

The hem is the perfect length for movement and modesty--hitting just above the knee. 
 Giselle felt like such a lady in this dress.
