Today I’m sharing with you the Indigo dress by petitboo patterns that I sewed up. The designer, Allison is not new to the pattern designing world but has in fact been designing patterns under the petitboo brand for a while now and recently decided to make it easier on herself by merging E+M Patterns with the petitboo brand.

For today I sewed up the Indigo dress* (formerly known as Dress Pattern No 15). If you own the pattern under the E+M Patterns brand, nothing has changed to the actual pattern pieces, just the name on the pieces (and well, the links to webpages, etc).
It’s still not warm enough for outdoor pictures so I have just 18″ of clear wall space where I can get photos and even then it’s still hard to get Miss V to stay still for pics.
I noticed that on Miss V the neck opening seemed wide and the shoulder slid down a bit at times. It doesn’t bother her, it could be I stretched the neckline while sewing. I also didn’t wash the dress between sewing and pictures so it’s possible it could shrink back a little afterwards.
The dress has two views, I sewed the straight hem but there is also an an asymetrical hem that looks super cute as well.
My favourite feature of this dress is the shoulder detail. It’s so cute, and wasn’t that hard to do. I even made the ties, and my Dritz Loop Turner* made it super easy to do.
I was a little nervous about doing the shirring at the waist, the last time I had tried the elastic didn’t shrink! But it worked! I was so excited!
If you want to see other patterns I’ve sewn (and blogged) from the same designer you can check them out here: Heather top/dress, Hemlock top, Magnolia Skirt, and Heather top/dress again. I also have an interview with Allison (the designer) that you can check out as well.
This was a super quick sew, I highly recommend it!
