Legends Top and Dress . Sew Straight and Gather
Who’s ready to start planning their summer wardrobe?! I know I am!
Terri’s new pattern for Sew Straight and Gather is one of those quick sews, that you will make in just about any knit stashed.
Ironically, during the whole test, the weather here in Portugal, as been nothing but rain and cold. So shooting pictures for a summer dress was not the easiest of tasks. I call this my Longing for Summer photoshoot! 😀The pattern’s main feature is the flattering stand up collar. It has several style options, top or dress, long or short sleeve, sleeveless, half or full skirt.I made a sleeveless version with a low waistline. Already dreaming of my summer beach getaway! 😀 The top is cleverly constructed, incasing all the seams, so you’ll have a polished finish. This feature also gives you a chance to have fun with prints and color blocking.There’s also a girls pattern, so you can make a matching outfit for your girl!
The Legends Top and Dress Pattern will be on sale for $5 until February 19th. Go! I’ll just sit here by the window, watching the rain… the never ending rain!

What a beautiful Dress! I love the graphic pattern of the fabric and especially the collar that makes the Dress unique. The Pictures are really nice as well.
Wish you that summer will start soon. Here in Germany we have snow again for two days now…

Thank you Lena! I’ve been saving this fabric for a long time. I really like how the dress turned out! I complain too much about weather, we have a very mild winter where I live, no snow. But I’m starting to crave the sun, specially after 2 weeks of intense rain!

My friend, as I told you before, you have to stop making dresses that I LOVE! 😉
DianaFebruary 18, 2016 at 6:05 pm
Lucky you, we are the same size! ;D

The collar is really nice, but I’m in love with the bottom of the skirt and those cute ruffles. 🙂
Can’t wait for Summer to arrive! xx

Thanks Cátia! I think this is the first time I gathered a skirt without making a mistake. 😀 Summer come quick!

Amazing style! Looks so perfect on you 🙂
Sewing a dress for myself is on my wish list – and you make it look so simple (fab fabric, btw). Thank you for the inspiration <3

You’re so sweet! <3 Thank you Ana! I'll be waiting on your dress. ;D

This is a dress i’d wear, the problem is I keep pushing sewing for myself aside everytime. I love the collar.
