After releasing the first 3 dresses that were part of our Dreamy Collection last Spring (Juliette, Annabelle, and Isla), Megan G., Megan T. and I knew we needed more dreamy dresses in our life! We just LOVED creating special pieces that were comfy and easy to make, but made an awesome impact. The Dreamy Collection is full of wonder and joy! Beautiful, whimsical, sweet and girly patterns that make the perfect outfit for flower girls, special occasions and photo shoots. They are full of little girl’s dream dresses; dresses you can treasure forever.
This fall, we starting dreaming up a collection of dresses that would be perfect for a Dreamy Holiday Collection. Up first is Holly, which released this week. Lucky for you, it is still on sale through tonight at midnight CST (Sunday, November 20, 2016).
Holly comes in sizes 1/2 – 14, see size chart below. This beautiful pattern is suitable for woven fabrics. Holly is a a square neck style top or dress. The bodice is fully lined with a button and placket closure, with option to enclose the skirt seam. Choose from a simple top, simple dress or a double ruffled dress option. Perfect for year round wear with 4 sleeve options- flutter, short, 3/4 and long. All sleeves have optional elastic. Also includes an optional and removable big bow. You can dress this up for a holidays, weddings or your daughter can wear the simple top or dress everyday.
Here is a round up of all the beautiful tester photos. Let’s check out those options! First up is top length, which is the perfect length to pair with some skinny jeans, or your favorite pair of leggings (like bonny!).
Next up, the simple dress. So perfect for girls who may be out of the super girly, ruffle phase!
And finally, the Double Ruffled Dress option. Soooo perfect for that special occasion dress!
And as if there weren’t enough options already, Megan G. went ahead and made Holly with an exposed top ruffle. It doesn’t take that much more work, and gives a slightly different look! Check out the blog post on how to do it here.
Holly also features 4 different sleeve lengths, which makes it perfect for all seasons! Feel free to layer the flutter over a different sleeve length too…it looks adorable!
And of course, the optional bow on Holly is soooo adorable, and can be worn on the front or back of the dress!
Thanks for checking out Holly, and be on the lookout for the next dress in our ‘Dreamy Holiday Collection’ releasing next week! Don’t forget to share what you’ve made in the Made for Mermaids Facebook Pattern Group #hollypattern #madeformermaids #dreamycollection.
