I am so excited to finally be releasing my newest pattern, the Shelby Dress and Romper. I have been wearing this pattern on vacations and every warm day possible and I can definitely say that it is the summer outfit of my dreams. It has a serious nod to the 90s with a modern fit. The design includes princess seams, a back waist tie, a deep V neck line and button front closure. It’s very comfortable and easy to throw on but makes me feel so put together and ready for a date night at the same time.

We will talk more about fabric next week, but for now just know that this dress is perfect for the flowy summer wovens in your stash. These fabrics may include rayon challis, silk, light weight linen and crepe to name a few. You will also need some light weight fusible interfacing and small 3/8″ buttons to complete the project.

The pattern is labeled intermediate due to it’s buttonholes and sleeves, but I do think that a beginner could handle it if they broke it down into small steps and used a forgiving fabric. In fact, we will be doing a full sewalong of the Shelby pattern starting Monday May 27th to assist anyone in sewing it up, so please join us for that. I also have a few really fun hacks planned so be sure to check back for those in the coming weeks.

The Shelby is available as both a pdf and a paper pattern and is drafted for US sizes 0-18. You can find more information in my shop here. I can’t wait to see your versions.
