Today is the BIG DAY! I know I’ve been working on this for a loooong time, and you have all been so patient waiting for this pattern release. I’m so happy to report that the Desert Rose dress is finally available for purchase! You can hop over to my shop and buy it HERE.
I have a whole week of Desert Rose fun planned with tester photos, some newer versions, and a post about what it was like creating my first full digital sewing pattern. But for today, I’m just going to give you the stats on this dress and let you start sewing one yourself!
The Desert Rose Dress & Tunic features an empire waist, scooped neckline, and button closure in the front. The full skirt is perfect for twirling, includes optional in-seam pockets, and hits at the knee. It’s perfect for Spring and Summer wear, and can be worn in the Fall and Winter over a long-sleeve t-shirt.
Skill level: Advanced beginner/Intermediate (buttonholes are required but I give helpful instructions, so even a beginner can totally do this!)
Sewing time: 3-4 hours
Sizes included: 3m, 6m, 12m, 18m, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
