It is here!!! After lots of late nights by not only myself but also my wonderful pattern testers the Tuileries Dress pattern is finally done! You can find the pattern HERE on Craftsy where for the next 3 days it will be 3 dollars! After 3 days the price will go up to 8 dollars.
When I began learning how to grade I knew this, my favorite dress, had to be my first project. It just has it all, pleats, gathers, buttons, pockets and exposed zippers! But with all those fun details it is still an easy and quick project that can be tackled by even the newest of seamstresses.

I was lucky to have nearly 20 talented ladies sew up the dress as pattern testers to make sure all the kinks were worked out and to make this as great a pattern as possible. I just have to share some of their darling creations! (names hyperlinked to their blogs where available)
Elizabeth whipped up so many cute versions of this dress it was hard for me to choose but I just loved the combination of the green floral with the bright purple tights!
How happy are those pictures? I mean seriously? Bright happy colors on such a gorgeous girl = perfection.
Marian is a sewer after my own heart! Black floral dress, sweater and t-straps shoes? Yes please!!
When I saw Teri’s dress I thought for sure it was something from Janie and Jack! She did such a lovely job. And how stunning is that back placket instead of a zipper?!
I love Lyanna’s look! I mean purple, orange and turquoise? Oh my gosh I die! Plus I am totally envious of her darling gumball necklace!
That cute little smile with a hint of sneaky! Love it!
Oh my gosh right? The darling red hair with that gorgeous anchor fabric?!?! Killing me!
Floral prints look awesome for this pattern and Katie had kept this one in her stash for a while. I think it is perfect!
I thought the flutter sleeve lucy added was GENIUS!
Isn’t this just totally timeless? And it makes me excited for spring!
Angela told me she was doing some pattern mixing and I think it turned out so fabulous! I love that polka dot strip on the bottom!
Are you sufficiently inspired? I just couldn’t believe how wonderful these testers were! I know you have got some granny floral in your stash just begging to be made into something fabulous! Plus for the first 3 days of a pattern release it will be on sale for $3. After that the price will jump to it’s normal $8. So hop on over HERE to Craftsy and get sewing!!
Thank you so much to all my pattern testers. I don’t want the lovely ladies who reviewed but didn’t have time to get me pictures to think I don’t appreciate them as well! If you are interested in being a tester check back later this week for the announcement of the next pattern I need tested. This time I will only be taking one for each size, so only 6 people and it will be first come first serve so be sure to sign up for the feed so you can run over right away!
