P4P Sweetheart Dresses

Both these dresses were made quite awhile ago.  The blue/gray stripe was made in Septemberish? The green in November.

Both are made from the Patterns For Pirates Sweetheart Dress pattern. 



Size: Straight size Large


Fabric: 2 yards Heather Gray and Navy Ponte Knit purchased December 2014 from Hancocks for $10.78

Thoughts: Love love love.  I really love this dress. It is one of my favorite makes to date.

I also made some PegLegs in size 1x (one size up from my measurements because I wanted them to be a little looser for the material).  I used 1 yard of rose Double brushed Poly.  they are heavenly soft on the legs – like wearing a cloud!  The leggings cost about $7 to make.

Green Cowl:


 This is a mash up using the P4P circle skirt and Renfrew on top.

Size: Straight size Large for the P4P, size 8 for the renfrew on top (I made sure to blend the patterns together at the waist)

Fabric: 2 yards super soft Brushed Hunter Green Sweater Knit purchased from Knitpop in October. It was in an auction box so both yards cost $11.40 after shipping.


Thoughts: It’s ok. I like it. I feel a little matronly in it though.  I made it to go with some green/black leggings but then the greens didn’t look right together. I'm not sure what I'll wear underneath. Winter in Wisconsin is brutal so no naked legs!

I was able to get some pictures taken of most of my makes so expect a few posts upcoming.

Happy Sewing!


  1. Absolutely love your dresses, especially the stripey one. It fits so well! Also your hair is so long! I'm jealous - I tried to grow mine, but it was too thin.

    1. LOL Thank you Philippa! I've been thinking about cutting it lately so it's funny you say that!

  2. Both dresses are gorgeous but the striped one...LOVE!!

  3. You look absolutely fabulous, darling! Well done. I love those styles on you. Aren't P4P patterns amazing? Have you tried the latest -- cross your heart cami?

    1. Aw thanks Gwen! The P4P ones are just so perfect for my shape. I haven't tried the latest yet, I kind of felt like I had enough tank patterns of P4P since I have the LMU and Essentials ones. It is cute though!


Your comments really make my day! I read each and every one. Thank you!
