The Bumblebee Dress Pattern Tour & Giveaway

I've already said a lot about the Bumblebee Dress Pattern by Sewing MamaRaeAnna, but that's never enough or too much. If you still don't have your own pattern, RaeAnna has it available for 5$ until the 18th, or you can try your luck on the giveaway below. 


As I mentioned before, I was a tester for this pattern, and I fell in love. What I like best, is all the options and possibilities from this pattern. 

 
 
my first Bumblebee view B, my second Bumblebee turned into a tunic with pockets (find a tutorial to add pockets to this pattern here), and the unblogged third Bumblebee - just a peek for now

So, I am really honoured that not only I was able to test the pattern, I am also part of this wonderful tour. Seriously, have you seen the dresses that the other ladies in the tour have been sharing? There's a lot of creativity going on... Make sure you visit them, after reading all about my latest Bumblebee, which I confess, it's my fave of the 4th I've made. Actually, that and the blue one. 


I refashioned again! My mom brought me this gorgeous green dress just a couple of weeks ago and I was in love with all the details. But it was too big for me and I wasn't in the mood to just resize it for myself. I had better plans for it. I started by cutting the buttom to make the skirt of the tunic, and guess what? It had exactly the same measurements that I needed for the 2T I was going to sew. I had another good and similar surprise when I cut off the ruffles out of the original dress and again, they were exatcly the same size the pattern called for. They were just too wide so I cut it to the right side. I also used scraps from the dress to cover up regular buttons and make them matching the rest of the tunic. 

I didn't make that many changes to the pattern, I have enlarged the sleeves and even though the pattern doesn't call for sleeves lining, I did, the fabric is so light and fresh, and I wanted it to be a little warmer, so she was able to wear it on warmer Fall or Spring days. I skipped the ruffles though. She has actually used it yesterday for daycare, a big success. 


The day we took the photos was a little cold so she had a the jacket put on most of the time. I just snapped a few quick pictures of her without it. She had a lot of fun posing again. She's getting all pro about it. hehe


And then she found a spot, it was perfect for her to sing us a song and play her show!!!


Cute or what?
