I sewed this dress toward the end of summer 2019… It has been shared through Minerva for some time, but I’m not sure how it never made its way to the blog! I write my blog posts in real time so that I can be sure to capture all of my relevant thoughts on the fabric and pattern that I’m working with, so fair warning that some of the information here is outdated… For instance, since writing this, AK Patterns is no more! With that being said, I’ve left all the text below intact, as written back in August or September of 2019! I’m excited to finally be sharing this here today!
Big news – I’ve joined the Raspberry Creek Fabrics Promo Team for 2020! I’ve admired Raspberry Creek Fabrics for so long, and I’m so excited to join their blogger team and enjoy their fabrics this year! My first chance to sew with them was the Fall 2020 Fabric Drop – and I went IN.
Athina of AK Patterns came back from a hiatus and hit the ground running by releasing the Brittany Skirt last week – a new skirt pattern that is perfectly on trend for your Spring and Summer wardrobe needs!! The Brittany Skirt rides the line between your standard, gathered skirt and the dungaree / bibs / overall trend that has taken over this year. The over the shoulder straps add a fun touch that really takes this classic style to another level! I participated in the Tester Group for this pattern back in the fall, and I’m so happy to finally share it with you today!
