The New Belinda Dress (and one day discount sale)

Hi All! Hope everyone in the US had their fill of turkey, and everyone else had a great weekend! My family spent the weekend in Wisconsin and Donna and I had a chance to sew up the new Go To Pattern’s Belinda Dress.

Go to Patterns Belinda DressThe Belinda Dress was released today as part of Pattern Revolution’s Designer’s Challenge.┬áIf you haven’t been following along yet they it is a series featuring a TON of new pattern releases from various designers(and discount codes). This post includes affiliate links.

I will spare you the details, but we spent more time ripping than sewing this little dress. Which was NOT remotely the fault of the pattern. It is seriously an easy sew. But it turns out when you socialize and sew and have a lot of people and children running around- thing get sewn in backwards, and upside down, and wrong sides together….and so our 30 minute sewing project became a bit more than that.

Go to Patterns Belinda DressShe votes it was worth it! The dress is a cute knit number with a banded bottom and cuffed sleeve. NO HEMMING! Like Go to Patterns other knit dresses it is great for every day wear. I want to make her 4 more. We used a really soft knit with contrasting band, cuff and pocket ribbing. Check out Andrea’s versions to to see how fun this dress is with a heavier knit or even a sweatshirt material. You can really see the puff sleeve and bubble shape.

Did I mention the giant kangaroo pocket? Can’t go wrong with a pocket to stuff things in!

  1. Now I want this pattern so bad. There’s about 3 or 4 patterns I’m dying for but I really can’t justify buying, because I have so many. All are influenced by you. You are not good for my spending habit! I love this dress though..it goes to size 14!

  4. Oh cute! I love the band at the bottom! So I picked up the lady skater pattern and the grainline scout tee. I’m really excited to sew both up, and have fabric in my stash for both of them! Can’t wait to see what you sew with your new fabric!

  5. Cute! Thank you so much for sharing! And I spent way to much time picking apart seams on the last one I made. I think anything that could go wrong did!

  6. This is the first time I’ve seen the Belinda dress, you often introduce me to new patterns. That fabric caught my eye, I have used striped fabric in those colors, but woven cotton. Where do you do the majority of your fabric shopping? Does it happen to be the fabric warehouse up north?
