The Polina Dress

I’m so lucky to sometimes get to pattern test for my favourite designers.  This time it was for Coffee+Thread the brand new Polina Dress.

I love this girly pattern.  It offers two kind of frills, small circular ones like the ones I made and long ones that run almost from waist and over the shoulders and down to the waist again.  I did a gathered skirt but you can also do a full circle skirt for perfect twirling.  I didn’t have enough of any cute fabric in my stash to do that one.

There are also two types of ties, the ones I made and then flared ties.  You can choose to line the bodice or not.  I prefer a lined bodice because of the cleaner finish on the inside.

It was freezing cold so I told her to goof around to try to stay a little warm.  Its tough to be the kid of a sewing blogger.  But hey what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right?!

I made Anitas dress in size 5 widthwise and lengthened to a size 6.  Fabric is Robert Kaufman, Hello Tokyo.  I’ve had it for a while and can’t remember where I ordered it from.  But I’m thinking from Miss Matatabi.  She calls this dress her Pinky Pie dress because it looks like it has balloons like Pinky Pie, in case you also watch My Little Pony and are thinking the same thing.

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
