A spirited girl in her spirited dress.

Did catch your copy of the latest One Thimble ezine?  There are so many patterns in there I’m dying to try out.  I tested one of the patterns, The Spirited Dress which is Candice Ayala debut into pattern making.  And what a debut!

This is the ultimate twirling dress with a full circle skirt.  What makes it really stand out is that beautiful Queen Anne neckline.

I graded from a size 5 width to a 7 length.  The pattern comes in sizes from 2 to 9 and recommended fabric is a stable knit f. eks. quilted knit, jacquard, double knit, liverpool and french terry.  I used double jacquard for this one which I bought from a Norwegian online store called Stoffdronning.

I cheated on the hemming and just did a rolled hem on my serger, fast and easy!

I almost forgot to tell you there is a bonus pattern for underpants as well, so your little one wont be flashing her underwear while twirling and twirling.  I should mention that Anita is not wearing those in these photos cause as you can see it was cold outside so it was more fitting for her to wear thick stockings.

To get this beautiful pattern designed like I said by Candice Ayala who also is the mastermind behind Sewing Portfolios you have to buy issue 18 of One Thimble.  That means you get 10 patterns for girls, boys and ladys plus a bunch of sewing related articles for $25.00 AUD – steal of a deal!

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
