Just in time for Spring, the first Garden Party Dresses have sprung!
It's so exciting to see renditions of this dress being made all over the world!
Here's a version from Needles in Germany, don't you love how she added a collar and cuffs? I love the end result! I think I have to try this myself too.
Nikica in Croatia made this lovely polka dot GPD! She used a very lightweight fabric and it turned out beautifully. I love the thin black belt and details on the sleeves which you can just see poking out.
Here's Sleek Silhouette's ravishing raspberry version. I love how the higher waistline brings out that ballerina look! Very elegant.
Just a reminder if you are planning to make this dress, I mention it in the instructions but the sleeves are on the narrow side. Check out my tutorial on how to customise them to your size before you start snipping!
Happy Spring everyone!

Hi Ai, hope it goes well! Don't forget to double check the fit of the sleeves!Delete
They all look so great! I love how everyone made the dress "their own"! Also, your shamrock top is too cute -- great job!ReplyDelete
Don't they?! Thanks Jean!Delete
Oh, these are all so cute! It must be so exciting to see your dress on other people!ReplyDelete
Wild! Isn't the Internet amazeballs....!Delete
I have finely started! I am doing the cutting today, and found out that i have two questions:ReplyDelete
1) about the sleeves.. i see that you mention them alot, and remind us to check the tut Ok how to adjust them. do you find them to small for the "average" person? Are you peticularey tiny? Hehe... did you have to make them bigger?
2) can i put din hidden pockets?? I love pockets, and hope that this can be done to this pattern. Or will the folds get din the way?
That's great to hear! Hope i havent gotten to you too late. yes they are on the very small side, smaller than average so definitely measure them before you cut. Pockets sound great! The only thing I would be wary of is pulling the back pleat open when you're wearing them, but I would try it! If it doesn't work you could always take them out and stitch up the side seams.Delete
Hope you are enjoying the pattern, looking forward to seeing a picture when you finish! Let me know if you have any other questions... :)
