Figgy’s Heavenly Tour: The Ethereal Dress

One of my lovely friends Shelly is the owner and designer at Figgy’s, which is a shop full of beautifully unique patterns.  Just recently, I had sewn up the tween sized Celestial Pullover (read HERE) and I love it!   Today, I am part of the Heavenly Tour and we were all given the chance to sew up any pattern from her shop and I chose the Ethereal Dress.

Immediately, I knew that Ainsley already had way too many clothes for winter, so I decided to start her summer wardrobe.  I chose the Michael Miller/ Sarah Jane “Out to Sea” fabric that I have been hoarding since last year and I think it will be perfect for summer days.  I love the optional flounce on this dress and I centered one of the sailboats on it.
The back has a simple button loop closure, which I love.
Figgy’s sizing seems to run a tad large, so I did the size 4/5  because this won’t be worn for several more months and she will get a long life out of it.  
This dress has the option of flounce/no flounce, sleeves/no sleeves, dress length/tunic length, so there are many ways to change it up.  Next time I make it, I think I will do the sleeves in a tunic length so that she can wear it with some leggings.  There are so many options!

I had grand plans for this photo shoot… you know, outdoors with lots of sunlight and color, but we have had massive snowstorms here (like seriously massive) so we are stuck inside.  
Ainsley’s face says it all.
We can’t wait for summer.
Shelly, thanks for having us on your tour! 
We love this dress and all of your patterns.

    I love the Zephyr (especially as a romper), but this Ethereal dress might be a close second – that flounce is so unique!

    Of course yours is my favorite on the tour! 😉 If I had to chose a second favorite it would be the Etherial Dress from Behind the Hedgerow.

    To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t quite struck with this dress pattern until I saw your version. Now I
    LOVE it! Positioning the sailboat on the frill makes all the difference, and I immediately started imagining designs in my head. Thank you for the review, you really opened my eyes!
