Stitch Upon A Time has this amazing pattern called the Brazi (I’ll have a post soon with my awesome one – SUAT actually has many amazing patterns). Anyway, now the Brazi pattern is available for girls and is called the Aurora! I was lucky enough to be a pattern tester; I was so excited when I got the email that I almost poured my cereal into my tea…. I couldn’t get to my computer fast enough!
Just in time for summer, this pattern has a tank on top, skirt on bottom. There are many options too such as crossed straps in back, uncrossed; shirt length, knee length or maxi length; and knit skirt or woven skirt! I love options.
The pattern goes from Newborn to size 12 girls!! I wish I had a little one to put this on. Miss K has been turning her nose up at dresses lately, but when I sewed up this pattern she didn’t want to take them off! She loves them.
SUAT patterns are amazing! They are fast to sew; each dress took me about an hour to make. The instructions are very detailed and give you pictures every step of the way.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to do the design on the front of the dress, it matches the design in the skirt.
Fabric for the above dress: 1/2 yard of Light Turquoise Blue Jersey Knit, 97% cotton 3% Lycra. I purchased this in January 2015 for $1.98. The skirt part is 2 yards of Sapphire Blue Floral Jersey Knit, purchased in Feb 2016 for $10.50. It was listed as a cotton lycra but behaves like a poly lycra. Total for this dress: $12.48.
After I made the blue one, Miss K wanted another one right away. So I made this red one with a woven skirt.
I used a size 12 for Miss K – this is exactly in line with her measurements. I made no adjustments!
Fabric: 1/2 yard of Bright Red Jersey Knit, 97% cotton, 4% lycra; purchased in Jan 2015 for $1.98. The skirt is 2 yards of White/Red Floral Print Lawn, purchased in March 2016 for $8.90. Total for this dress: $10.88
I made the gold butterfly with my Silhouette cameo.
Happy Girl, happy Momma! This pattern is amazing!
