I saw a call for sewers to participate in a blog tour featuring The Cosmo Dress from Sewpony and all it took to apply was to comment on the Facebook post. I never in million years thought I would get to join in on the fun so I wasn’t even paying attention to my messenger and it took me a day or two to see the message that I was in. I panicked and was afraid I had missed my chance, but luckily all was good and here I am! I have to admit that I have a bit of a stage fright being in the company of such great bloggers! The same is not to be said about my daughter as you will see later on in this post. Stick around (or at least scroll down) to the end for a discount code.
I love the classic A-line shape of the Cosmo dress and the way you can play with colors or fabric using the side panels and pockets. You can also choose between three different collars: medal, ties or sailor like the one I did. You also have a choice of making the dress sleeveless, with pleated short sleeves, flutter sleeves, plain 3/4 sleeves or long sleeves.
I just love these flutter sleeves!
And so does Anita!
The back has an exposed zip. This was my first time sewing an exposed zip on a dress and I was a little nervous making sure it was centered but it went well. I just wish I could have gotten a cooler zip but the selection at my local store is pretty basic and I didn’t have time to order online.
The Cosmo dress is not lined but has facings around the collar, armholes and zip. That was also a first time for me to finish a woven dress like that. It’s fun to sometimes do things differently than you’re used to and maybe you learn new tricks along the way. The pattern pieces are perfectly drafted so everything lined up beautifully.
There is a stage at the park we went to for taking pictures and of course miss Anita put up a show, singing and dancing her heart out. I wish I was as carefree as she is and I hope she stays this way forever!
Like this pattern doesn’t already have enough options you can also get the it in Dutch here if you are more comfortable reading it in that language or if you just want that little bit extra challenge.
