I was lucky enough to be chosen as a tester for Sewaholics newest pattern. The Yaletown dress and blouse.
The Yaletown is a loose fit dress or blouse with short sleeves. It is designed for soft drapey fabrics.
As with all Sewaholic patterns, this one had very detailed and easy to follow instructions.
I had great fun making this, I am not sure what the actual fabric is. It was some left over piece I found on sale at Fabricland a while ago, and when I saw this pattern, knew it would be ideal.
The pattern features a mock wrap top and pockets in the skirt. I love pockets! (I also love how it was moving in the breeze in this photo)
As with all Sewaholic patterns, this one is named for an area in the Vancouver region. I Googled it and apparently Yaletown has been revitalized over the years and is now one of Vancouver's hippest neighbourhoods. I am adding to my list of places to visits when I am in Vancouver at the end of August!
When these photos were taken it was spring and that is blossom on the ground behind me not snow! Although with the late start we had to spring in Southern Ontario, you would be forgiven for thinking it was snow!!
