What do you think?  Do you love the Be Dreamy Dress as much as we do?  The Be Dreamy dress reminds me of the maxi dresses I wore as a child.  I was the girl that would play baseball in my backyard with the neighborhood boys, while I was wearing a long maxi dress.  It makes my heart happy to see Baby Girl loving the same style dress.

Just look at Baby Girl’s smile in the Be Dreamy dress!  The girls maxi dress sewing pattern is super easy fast sew.  The sewing pattern also includes a high low option I plan on trying next.  There are also two options of flounce sleeves; I just chose the large size.  The Be Dreamy dress can be used with multiple types of knit. I used a peach and blue floral double brushed polyester from So Sew English. The bigger the flounce, the better for me.  I have been waiting for just the right sewing pattern to use this fabric, so when I saw the Be Dreamy dress, I knew it would be perfect! Since it is freezing cold outside, we had to bring the Spring inside.

Nothing says Spring like a couple of cherry blossom trees, right?  Just like our painted fireplace, the thrift store sofa table and the wooden boxes that now hold my vinyl, I painted her dresser, mirror and picture frames with Miss Mustard Seed milk paint.  I used the paint colors Schloss and Arabesque.  Pink and gray are two of my favorite colors, besides green. I purchased her the Eiffel Tower lamp on ebay.  When I was binge watching Gilmore Girls,  a couple years ago, I noticed Rory had the same one in her room too! I love small details and accessories.

So, before I began sewing the Be Dreamy dress I debated adding some lace or trim to the bottom of the bodice.  So I rummaged through my stash.  That is when I found this sash I had made over a year ago.  I had glued some peach flowers onto some ivory stretch lace.  I remember when I bought the flowers from my supplier, she asked how I planned to use them.  There was no plan for the peachy floral sash, it has just been waiting for me to make it a coordinating outfit.   Peach is such a lovely colro; I feel it is very underrated color.  I wish I could find more of it.  The peach floral sash and the peach Be Dreamy girls maxi dress were an amazing match!

I think the sash makes the Be Dreamy dress look more dressed up. I want this maxi dress in my size too! (Are you listening Ellie and Mac?  We need a women’s version now too PLEASE.) 🙂 Overall, the Be Dreamy dress is definitely a new favorite!!  I cannot wait to make her next one!  I have already started planning!  The Be Dreamy dress is also my “newest pattern” for this week’s 52 week sewing challenge!

About Seams Sew Lo 127 Articles
Hi I'm Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers.  I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job.  With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help. With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop.  I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits.  I was so busy I couldn't keep up and had to seek out third party help. After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy.  There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create.  I started venturing out to more articles of clothing.  It has been a fun adventure. I am learning as I go.  I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go.  I don't think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!

  1. This is gorgeous!! I love the fabric and pattern together!! I think making maxi dresses for little ones is so special, it makes them feel more grown up. The pattern looks so fun!!

  2. The Be Dreamy Dress I made for my daughter is what hooked me on Ellie and Mac! I made the high low version and it’s my favorite sew still!

  3. I would actually love to make this as a nightgown for my girl….she wears twirly dresses almost every day, but rwfuses to wear anything but long nightgowns at night

  4. I love the design of the dress, the color choice and the print of the material for this designed dress. Although the dress looks great without the sash adding on the sash gave it a dressed up look. I also have to agree with you that the color peach is sadly not given it’s well deserved fame, for a lack of a better word. I love the color peach and find it hard to find coordinating prints to match up the way I would want them to.

  5. Everything about that room is adorable, but your Little Girl in her dress makes the room pale in comparison. She looks delighted for her dress!

  6. Love, love, love the dress – but I adore the room. I’m not a big pink girl, but cherry blossoms are my all time favorite! Husband’s can be confused, I approve! Haha

  7. Such a beautiful dress and I love how you can see she likes it a lot.
    I’ve actually never worn a maxi dress in my entire 26 years – I think I need to change that!
