Seamingly Smitten Pattern Tour

One of the very first PDF pattern designers that I was introduced to a couple years ago was  Seamingly Smitten. The patterns were so easy to follow and the results were a hit with my little girls. When I was ready to start sewing for myself I decided to start with Seamingly Smitten. I was so excited to have to opportunity to participate in this pattern tour so I thought I might as well push my comfort zone a little further and go strapless. :)
I bought this quilting cotton a few months back at Joann with the idea that I would make something for myself and then it just sat there. I guess it was waiting for the perfect dress. 

This is the Riverwalk Sundress. I measured right between the L and the XL so I decided to go with the L to minimize the extra fabric around the middle (I have enough all on my own). ;) This is the strapless version with inseam pockets and elastic at the waist.  All of these options are in the pattern as well as a couple more. This is a great and versatile pattern for the summer.

I decided to throw on a jean jacket and see how well this look will transition into the fall. I can't wait to get some wear out of this adorable dress. 

I'd like to give a shout out to my awesome photographer, aka my 7 year old daughter Maddie. She's such a big helper.

  1. As usual, you look ADORABLE. You should make more clothes for yourself because each outfit you do make is fantastic!

    1. Thank you!! I am starting to get more comfortable sewing for myself. :)

  2. Erin you look beautiful in red!! Your dress came out awesome and I love the jacket on top for the fall! You could also wear a cardigan with it or a tailored blazer to dress it up! So many options as the weather gets cooler - and tell your little girl she is a fabulous photographer for a 7 year old!! :)
    Thank you for being part of the pattern tour!!

    1. Thank you so much for having me! I am definitely a cardigan and see this dress getting a top of use. :)

  3. Oh my gosh, so cute! I love the pockets and the dress looks fab with the blue denim.

    1. Thanks Jamie! I think all moms need as many pockets as they can get ;)
