Good morning! Today is the final day of the Secret Garden Dress blog tour, and I am part of the last stop. The Secret Garden Dress was designed by Sprouting JubeJube and E+M Patterns, and it is absolutely gorgeous. Below you will find a line up of all the amazing ladies included in the blog tour, and I will also have a links at the end of the post with a Rafflecopter Giveaway!
The Secret Garden Dress is simply stunning. From its perfectly flowing flounce to the well constructed bodice, this dress has all the makings of a great pattern! I also just adore the V shaped back bodice. I find that it compliments the flounce quite well. We did a size 4 since Madison has grown over the past couple months, and the fit is spot on. I really can't wait to focus on the design of this dress and create something inspiring. The Secret Garden would make a lovely Christmas dress!
Madison was digging her "angel wings" on the back, which was really a designer error on my part. I am actually liking the end feel of the dress. I will say the dress construction is just a little tricky, so I would suggests reading through the tutorial three or four times until you really understand what you are doing. There were some areas where I had a particular hard time with, but after I walked away, grabbed a coffee and gave my mind a rest, I was able to come back with laser focus and get it done!
I hope you enjoyed my version of the Secret Garden Dress! Don't forget to enter the rafflecopter below, as well as check out all the amazing sponsors and ladies on the tour!
