Sea Breeze Dress and Giveaway (CLOSED)

See my full disclosure policy here.

This pattern was provided to me for free to participate in this pattern tour.

Good morning everyone! Today I am sharing the Sea Breeze Dress I made as part of the summer tour for the Peek-a-boo Pattern shop. Today only, the Sea Breeze dress is on sale for $5! That's almost 40% off the usual price. 


My little model was so excited to try it on-and pose for me. I don't know where she comes up with her poses, but she's a natural. I added pockets to the skirt {not included in the original pattern} because she is a huge fan of pockets.

I loved the ruffles on the bodice, which is why I picked this pattern to test, but there are so many other adorable patterns in the shop. I had a hard time picking! I also loved the layout of the instructions. They were so clear and easy to follow.

We are landlocked, but since this is the Sea Breeze dress, we stopped by the lake so there would be some water. It made this little girl's day, but nearly gave me a heart attack, since my son went charging right in like he does at the pool and I had no idea how deep the water was.


If there's another pattern you like in the shop, check the schedule. All patterns go on sale on the day of their tour stop. You can also enter to win a giveaway for a three pack of patterns every day on the tour. Oh, did I forget to mention that? Yep, today I am hosting a giveaway for the winner's choice of three patterns from the shop! Scroll down to enter.

I love your version of the Sea Breeze dress! It's so cute. I think my favorite dress is a toss up between the Sea Breeze, the Lucy, and the Clara Twirl.
