The Pocketful of Posies Knit Dress by PAB Release!

 

 

Raise your hand if you love a great knit dress!

With three girls in our house, we certainly do!

Today at Show and Tell, we are blogging about the new Pocketful of Posies knit dress from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop!

Ever since Amy shared her knit dress creation with her custom Have Courage and Be Kind strike-offs in December, I have been watching for this pattern release and I was lucky enough to be chosen as a tester.

I was chosen to test size 10 for Big Miss. I sewed up a size 10 tunic (12 length for my tall girl) with piping and pockets! I used Riley Blake Vintage Navy Floral and Art Gallery Diamond Flush Dance Knit. I ordered both prints in December hoping that they would mash well, and in my opinion they look fantastic! I have already made myself a City Chic out of the same prints as well.

Anyone who sews for a tween will tell you that pleasing them can be hit or miss. It’s safe to say that I knocked it out of the park in ‘tween satisfaction this time!

I love how the pockets serve both design and function! And the piping is so fun!

The drop waist and tunic and dress lengths are perfect for the full range of ages the pattern serves.

Finally, using one of Amy’s panels is one of my sewing addictions:

Simple sew + panel = striking results.

Little Miss is rocking a “You are My Sunshine Panel” from the Peek-a-Boo Fabric Shop! I also used solid yellow Cotton Lycra from the shop and the You Are My Sunshine Coordinate.

Little Miss (19 months) is wearing a size 4T without pockets and tunic length. I wanted her to have a little growing room for summer since she already has a long sleeve Gloria made with the You Are My Sunshine prints.

As with all of the Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop pattern lines, I see many more of these in our future!
