I took one look at this pattern and knew I wanted to make the dress version with 3/4 sleeves in a denim for fall. Now fall doesn’t officially start here in Florida for another 3 or 4 months but a girl can dream, right? I chose a denim from Art Gallery Fabrics to complete this look. I love working with their denim, it is so soft and has the best drape. It also doesn’t wrinkle as much as other denims (because who wants to wear wrinkly clothes).
The dress sews togethers nicely with the clear instructions and illustrations that Kennis gives. She has also filled the Itch to Stitchblog with great tips, tricks and tutorials for perfectly blending sizes, fearlessly setting in sleeves and tons of other great techniques for a flawless sew.
This week only the *Bonn Shirt & Dress is currently 20% off (use code DREAM). Kennis is also offering 15% off when you purchase two or more patterns from the shop. This is a perfect time to stock up on some great patterns!!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my fall version of the Bonn Shirt and Dress. I’d love to hear which version you plan to make first.
It has been months in the making and I have been not so patiently…
I am so happy you are here!!! I have something so exciting to share…
