Testing 1.2.3 the Persimmon Dress

This pattern is now available on Mouse House Creations shop.  Grap it here at my affiliate link

Wow, I have never done so much blogging in one week.  and I still have three more outfits to write about!  I am not a big fan of the writing part because I feel like I am sounding silly or I just go blank.  Well I don't think you will need to read much because the dress/tunic says it all!

Sorry, I can now see it is a bad idea to edit photos on my laptop. I now see most of my pictures are a little over exposed.  It just makes the dress stand out a little more I guess : )  

Let me start by telling you about the new pattern collaborative named Willow & Co.  It is a group of extra talented designers who have came together to offer you some of the best patterns out there.  This spring they are releasing there first collection named Wanderlust.

 This dress is the Persimmon dress.  The pattern was designed by Hayley of Mouse House Creations.

I tested most of this before the tutorial was available so my straps are excessively short, but as you can see it is still beautiful!  I used a plum colored linen from Joann Fabrics.  I think the thickness of the fabric really made the top fluff out.  By the way, this is the tunic length not the dress.  

ready for another photo overload : )!

 I Love the pleats on this

I serged the hem and than turned the hem up instead over under and than trimmed the edge so that yes once again I left a raw edge.  I did the same when attaching the ruffles.  You can kinda see it poking out under the white bias tape I added for detail.  It kinda made the dress lay funny but after a wash it looked amazing!

Look at my bossy little lady : ), this is what happens when a little girl has three dotting older brothers!

See what I mean : )

The Persimmon dress and the rest of the collection will be available next Tuesday April 22nd.  You can grab your patterns at

Thanks for reading !
