Itch to Stitch Blog Tour 2018 - Sirena Dress
It is day 4 of the 2018 Itch to Stitch Blog Tour!
This is my first time being a part of any blog tour and it was such an awesome experience. There are 26 other bloggers on this tour — all whose posts you should definitely check out! 12 amazing sponsors and yes, a giveaway! As an awesome bonus, Kennis from Itch to Stitch is running a sale on each day’s showcased patterns! (I’ll get more into that below!)
The theme for this year’s blog tour was ITS Time to Sew Itch to Stitch. Meaning we (the bloggers) were supposed to sew up the pattern we’ve been itching to sew!
It sounds like a fun and totally easy theme…unless you’ve seen the patterns from Itch to Stitch. Every single new release adds a new pattern to my MUST SEW list. How was I supposed to chose!?!
Anyhow, I couldn’t be any more ecstatic about the project that came to be…
Let me introduce you to the Sirena Dress made from a gorgeous 100% cotton double gauze from Mabel Madison fabrics.
Before we go on you should know, Mabel Madison is offering $10 off of orders of $50 or more with the code ITSTOUR. (Code vaild until September 30th, 2018) They still have some of this adorable flamingo print in stock HERE! Mabel Madison has great prints and staple solids in both knit and woven fabrics. Go take a look at their selection and you will not be disappointed!
The Sirena Dress pattern is a slimmer silhouette perfect for any occasion depending on fabric choice. A silk could make it stunning as an evening dress, bright print perfect for a daytime celebration, or a white soft cotton with tiny flamingos that is sophisticated but still hints at a playful side. ;)
The pattern has a sleek rounded neckline, two different sleeve options, a lined or unlined option, custom fit bodice with cup sizes from A-DD, and every woman’s favorite part…POCKETS! Yes! In these photos I actually have my hot-pink continuous glucose monitor in my left…or maybe it was the right(?) pocket. Anyway, you can’t see it and that’s the point of bringing it up. (There also wasn’t any pulling at the waist from the weight of the monitor while wearing.)
I absolutely adore this dress.
The hemline is at a perfect length, the silhouette is so flattering and the construction process was easier then I originally anticipated. Thanks to the incredible explanation of instructions included in every Itch to Stitch pattern.
Just for today (September 20th) Itch to Stitch has the Sirena Dress pattern on sale for $10. This pattern is worth it!
Get $10 off a $50+ order at Mabel Madison using the code above until September 30th 2018
