{BLOG TOUR} The Naples Dress by Jennuine Design

I am so thrilled to be invited on a Blog Tour by Jennuine Design.  Jenn's patterns are always loaded with options and The Naples Dress is no exception.  

The Naples Dress includes: 

~ Tunic and dress lengths,
both gathered or A-line

~ 4 sleeve options,
sleeveless, butterfly, mid or long bell 

~ Different neckline finishes,
including a free collar,

released earlier in the tour.

~ Sizes nb - 12

Did I mention that the tour is sponsored by Art Gallery Fabrics?  Eeek! We had our choice of a few colorways of Essentials II (new by Pat Bravo), denim, or solid knits.  After reading the pattern, I browsed the fabric and chose Essential II's Intertwill Azur, accented by Streakly Business Azur.  My blue-eyed blondie looks best in blue.  This fabric feels so great and sews so nicely. Thank you so much Art Gallery Fabrics!!

I chose to sew a sleeveless, gathered dress in anticipation of the upcoming summer temps we always encounter every Spring here in North Carolina.  By the time we get to sleeves weather, she will likely have outgrown it.  If you notice in the picture collage above, I opted to sew the bias-bound split back.  Of course, after I sewed my last stitch, I had a brilliant idea ... LOL  I'll save it for next time ;)

As I was preparing my pattern (which prints in layers, by the way!), I decided to line my bodice so I could cut Streakly Business on the bias to highlight the stripes.  I love how it turned out! I, then used Intertwill Azur to make handmade bias tape to complete the neckline.
