I made the Be Dreamy dress and it sure is dreamy! You can find the girls maxi dress sewing pattern here. Baby Girl is only starting to wear more dresses and even before she put on this dress, she asked me to make her more of them!
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!
