I tested the new Sheona pattern by Athina Kakou. It is a relaxed jersey shift dress that has plenty of options and is easy and quick to sew.
Penny at the seaside
The local fabric shop had lovely new floral viscose fabrics and I couldn’t resist this tropical fabric. I had just the perfect pattern for it on my Sensible Sewing Challenge list: The Sew Over It Penny Dress. This is now my favourite dress pattern having made two dresses and the blouse with it. (Btw. They just published this former pdf-only pattern as a printed pattern, so check it out if you hate cutting and pasting pdf-patterns together!) However, I do recommend not snipping the fabric underneath your arms that the instructions say. You can very easily sew the side seams and then hem the sleeves or do what I did…
Junebug dress as a nightie
Junebug dress pattern is a pattern for a dress and not a nightie. However, the colouring, the fabric choice and the vintage look makes it look more of a nightie to me.
Named Clothing Kielo wrap dress
I knew that Kielo is a very popular pattern but would it work for me? I decided to find out! I bought the pattern and then went around the booths until I found a nice organic jersey for it at Nuppu print company with a beautiful print designed by Satu Kontinen.
1950s dress McCall’s M7748
I made a gorgeous McCall's M7748 dress to wear for my cousin's wedding. This pattern is from the Archive collection and approximately from the year 1957. This dress took me several days to make but I can say that taking the time really pays off with this dress and the final dress fits and looks nice.

Liikunnalliselle nuorelle neidille mekko-shortsihaalariyhdistelmä on yliveto.
