It’s finally here..
“Sweet Strawberry Fields”. Image your greatest memory during the Summer months, while floating in a field of sweet, delicious, ripe strawberries. And, true to my fashion nature, the overall style of this dress has a ‘vintage’ flare. Starting at the top of the dress, is a gorgeous rounded, off-shoulder collar, with optional shoulder straps. It’s connect to the bodice, designed as a fitted corset. At the waist, you’ll enjoy a full skirt, with an extended hem. The hem is an additional piece that can be made into a boarder, or a ruffle. It’s all up to the creator. And, that’s you! Have fun with prints and patterns. Mix it up! The options are unlimited in this dress style!

As a Pattern Designer, I already own (6) copies of this dress. I made slight modifications along the way, in order to see how the slight changes would translate to a finished dress. Check them out:
I made this copy as a version without shoulder straps. And, it also has a full ruffled hem. I used (3) strips to make it possible.
This version has a shorter skirt. And, because the skirt is a sheer rainbow lame, I put a solid white layer underneath. The bodice is made from an Up-cycled Ralph Lauren denim shirt dress.
And, would you know it, I actually had a piece of vintage fabric for this version. It features hand-painted fruits (cherry and watermelon), and sunflowers! The bodice is a red linen fabric.
This version, is the very first one I made. And, it has no additional hem, at all.
And, these final two are my favorites. The ‘unicorn’ version, featuring mixed fabrics. And, the one that I feature in my step-by-step tutorial.
I love this pattern. This dress is fun to make. It may be a little challenging for a beginner. But, with the step-by-step image tutorial, you’ll be confident enough to take it on!
