Today, we have the Monroe Color Block Dress by My Little Plumcake. With summer is full swing, my tween is begging for sleeveless tops! You can pick up yours today on Etsy , and save 15% with the code MONROE15, now through July 2nd! Check out my review of the tunic version below!
My daughter is 12, and developing into quite the young lady. She really isn't ready for women's patterns, but is far past the ruffles are cute phase. I am always on the lookout for patterns focused on tweens/teens. When this pattern popped up, I was so excited!
This is a quick pattern, it took my less than 2 hours from printing to finished, and that includes interruptions from the kids! She gives clear directions and pictures for each step, I think this will be Jody's next sewing project! I love the options to mix and match fabrics, great for using up those larger scraps! For this one, she picked out a Riley Blake print & coordinates. I love the idea of simple lines!
Jody is right between sizes, so I went with the smaller size. I did notice it is a bit tight around her hips, so next time, I will size up. I also noticed some gapping in the front, and I believe it is due to where she is developed, so on my next one, I will probably add bust darts. Overall, I think this will be a pattern we get a lot of use out of!
Don't forget, you can get your copy today for 15% off with the code MONROE15 here! Happy sewing!
