Pattern Parcel #3: The Staple Dress

See my full disclosure policy here.
Disclosure: I received all these patterns for free in exchange for my review. My opinions are my own.
Pattern Parcel #3

It's time for Pattern Parcel #3, and I'm excited to share what I made with you. It includes lots of fun patterns, and I'm excited to try them all out. I really love that it comes with a swimsuit. Perfect for summer! I totally would have made it if I didn't have a baby belly.

Since I do, I chose to go with the Staple Dress. It's loose fitting enough that I thought it would be forgiving. Plus, I really loved the high/low option.

The instructions call for a shirred waist, and I decided to cut along the shirring line (plus seam allowances) to make it out of two different fabrics.

It's a simple sew, and the instructions are easy to follow. It includes some nice finishes, like french seams.  Even if you don't have a serger, you'll end up with nice, finished seams on the inside.

Since it has the nice, drapey fit, its perfect for the summer. And I made it in the same size I'd make it normally, so I'm hoping to get more wear out of it, even when I don't have the baby bump!

About Pattern Parcel:
Here at Perfect Pattern Parcel, we believe in supporting independent pattern designers. It’s our opinion that indie patterns are just, well, better than big box patterns, and we’re pretty sure our customers think so too. So, we allow customers to show their support in naming their own price for each Parcel.  We also encourage customers to allocate part of their Parcel price to the charity Donorschoose.org in order to help classrooms in need. Pattern Parcel donates all profits after expenses from Parcel sales to the charity as well. Together we've raised almost $4,500 towards eliminating educational inequality.
