A sweet little pattern landed in my sewing room lately… it’s the Bohemian Babydoll by my friend Heidi of Elegance & Elephants.
Let me show you what I created with it….
An adorable little dress for Gaëlle…
Pattern The Bohemian Babydoll by Elegance & Elephants
Chosen options Dress length, no flutter sleeves, contrasting fabric at bodice and hem facing
Fabric Miraleste Organic Cotton Voile Fabric , Palos Verdes by Leslie Shrewing for Cloud9, purchased from Finch Sewing Studio on Etsy
Comments I love that Heidi guides you through a few sewing techniques that make this pattern really special: the first is the finish at the waist which has you sew the bodice lining to the skirt together, and then fold and sew the bodice main to the skirt to create an impeccable finish inside and out (no more scratchy serger finishes on tender little bellies); the second is the hem facing (seen above) which is just lovely and adds that polished look to the dress. I also love that Heidi reminds you of the proper time to stitch your sewing label (I ALWAYS forget!). The result is a beautiful breezy summer dress, with no buttons or zippers to worry about. Totally recommend this little dress!
This is the second pattern from E&E that I make and I have to admit that I have become a big fan of Heidi’s work. See the Spring Showers Jacket HERE.
