My groovy girl.

The Groove Dress from Madeit patterns is such a satisfying sew.  Only five pattern pieces; front, back, 2 sleeves and a neckband if you do the basic version and then you just run your fabric through the serger and zimzalabim you have a great flowy dress that your girl loves!

It doesn’t hurt that the fabric is sparkly as well!  Fabric is this rayon/jersey from Imagine Gnats.  I’ve been using so much fabric from Imagine Gnats lately that you might think I was in affiliation with the store, but I’m not I just love her fabrics and the customer service is great!

Poor kid was freezing, it’s not easy being the kid of a sewing blogger!  But she is used to it by now so we power through and photo shoots don’t take so long anymore cause she knows what to do.

This time I did the high-low version in size 6 and to make this an even faster project I did rolled hem.  You might have noticed the seam down the front.  I’m choosing to file it under artistic creativity and not a mistake, wink wink!  I didn’t have so much left of the fabric from a previous project, which I’ll share soon.  I didn’t think before I begun cutting and started with the back piece but than I didn’t have enough to place the front on the fold.  First I was totally bummed but it grew on me and now I’m completely fine with it.

I have the women’s version of this pattern and I have to make one for myself soon!

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört
