Petit A Petit Block Party: Friday dress

All through November Celina from Petit a Petit patterns organizes a block party for bloggers from around the world. I was so surprised and super excited to get an invitation for Emi to this really cool party with so many amazing seamstresses!

We had a few months time to decide what to make with the Petit a Petit patterns. During the summer I tried the reversible swimsuit pattern, but I couldn't wait for November to blog about it. 

I changed my mind a million times until I spotted the Friday dress of Inês. Petit a Petit is about to release this new pattern, stay tuned! I was part of the testers group and fell for this pattern while making it step by step.

The Friday dress is not a quick sew, but you'll be so pleased with the result. It's worth it, to take the time to make this dress. With the excellent instructions everyone can sew this pattern and learn a lot along the way. 

I made size 3-4 y for my girl with a pointy collar, a belt, a wide skirt to twirl in, long sleeves, an inverse pleat at the back and a zipper in the side seam. You could say I went for the full option dress! Discover the many other options soon on Celina's blog.

The fabric I used is a soft double gauze from Georgette, an eco friendly Belgian fabric shop. It's an amazing fabric you can even use on both sides and the modern grid print just goes with everything.

I made some winter accessories to combine with the dress. A knitted beanie and a gilet in the softest longhaired fake fur.

For the photoshoot we went to one of Antwerps new landmarks, the park bridge. The light is amazing when the sun shines trough the asymmetric holes. And my daughter was happy to ride her bike a dozen times up and down this footbridge.

I had so much fun at this friendly neighborhood party! But it ain't over yet, keep following the tour and be sure to participate in the big giveaway!
