The Montpellier Dress

Can you believe that October is almost over? It's starting to feel like Fall around here, crunchy leaves, all things pumpkin and lovely sunsets.

Although I am a summer lover, I have been able to make my peace with the cooler temps and pull all of the layers and boots out of my closet. It's not my favorite thing to do but I can't complain too much because fall is so pretty and warm here in Georgia.

But I went off on a tangent there so back to the subject at hand. Here is the children's pattern for the Sew What Club to be released November 1st, the Montpellier Dress. 

I found this fine whale corduroy at Hobby Lobby and I LOVE it. I need to go back and get more so I can make Miss B a dress with it too. It is to die for. Gray and pink, you slay me.

It's also Kid's Clothes Week so I killed two birds with one stone right here. This might be the only thing I sew up for KCW because fall is a busy time, y'all. I mean, head spinning busy.

In other news, I am allowed to play Christmas music in 11 days, so I am pretty excited about that. :)

More from the Sew What Club

Yesterday The Sew What Club released their mid-month pattern for October: The I Dunno Shrug.

This pattern was easy peasy and I made it even easier by not using a trim, although I have seen some adorable versions with trim so I am regretting that decision just a bit.

I used a fun cotton spandex blend from my Girl Charlee September Knitfix. I still have quite a bit left over so I need to figure out what I can make for myself.

Miss L has worn the shrug non-stop since I gave it to her. I think that means she likes it. :)

The Cocoon Dress

Here is the first children's pattern for the Sew What Club in October. This one is so cute! May I introduce the Cocoon Dress.

This is a simple shift dress with ruffle sleeves and a cocoon shape, hence the name. :) Totally cute for fall.

I was too lazy to change the thread in my serger to white, so if you see the black seams that's why. Also, the recovery on this fabric (a cotton jersey) isn't that great which is why the neckline stretched out a bit. A great way to fix that is put in a neckband like a regular t-shirt. But again, I was too lazy.


This picture is deceiving because it looks like a beautiful fall day but it was hot and sticky, she was a trooper for putting on boots and a long sleeved dress. That's her personality though, "sure, mom, whatever you need!" Such a sweet girl.
