MCM Blog Tour – Gingersnap!

Gingersnap top, pattern by MCM Studios, sewn by Lulu & Celeste

It’s my turn to show off the pattern I sewed for the MCM Studio Designs blog tour! I made the Gingersnap dress. Read on for more details!



(Isn’t that logo just absolutely lovely?)

Disclaimer: I received the pattern for free the purpose of this blog tour. All opinions are my own of course 🙂


I first heard about MCM patterns when I saw the mash up Call Ajaire did using the Estherlyn pattern. I thought it was absolutely adorable, and bought the Estherlyn right away!

Then this blog tour was announced and I didn’t hesitate even for a second and signed right up!

Meet my Gingersnap!

I love the curved bodice, and the centre front pleat. They both add a sweet detail to the top (or dress).

The pattern comes in sizes 2 to 6, and I decided to make up a top version for little Miss V in the size 2. She measured slightly smaller in the chest but not much so it allows for some growth. She’s also smaller in height as well (she’s still a few months shy of her second birthday). So I made the top length, and it’s the perfect dress length for her now!

I decided to try out a ribbon hem. Not sure I did it properly as it kept flipping up.


I upcycled some jeans and used a gingham-like fabric for the skirt. (There’s probably an actual name for it but can’t find it). The fabric was in the remnant bin at the fabric store and has been waiting for me to use for it a while now. I may be tempting fate having the two types of fabric in one dress, it might mean I’ll need to handwash it. We’ll see…

The colour of the bottom fabric is actually closer to the non-modeled photos. Downfall to photographing in a blue room probably.


 I really like how it turned out! I think it’s sweet. And even my pink-loving 5-year-old liked it!

Here are all the pattern details:

  1. I really like what you did with the pattern. I think the seersucker and denim are cute together. Thanks for sewing this up and joining the tour. 🙂
