New Tutorial with Free Downloadable Pattern ~Neapolitan Dress~



Lovely Kathleen over at Grosgrainhas been doing Free Pattern Month. There are new patterns every day from various awesome bloggers. It has been a very fun and exciting event!


I admire Kathleen’s work so much! She not only is an amazing designer and seamstress, she is a very talented photographer too. Browsing her blog is like looking through an Anthropology catalog, I forget the time (or housework like cooking, cleaning and pulling weeds...) for a while.

She asked me to be on the board and participate in the free pattern month! When I read that email, my heart skipped a beat. I wanted say yes right away, but I was so scared of messing things up for her. I have never done a DOWNLOADABLE PATTERN before. She told me it would ok, but I really really wanted to try it. Of course I dragged my sweet hubby into it to figure things out, but we (he) did it!! Tea Rose Home’s very first downloadable pattern!

I came up with the Neapolitan Dress, the tutorials for sashing and babushka too. So, I hate to kick you out, but please head over to Grosgrain to check out what I did. I would love to hear from you!

  1. I've been following the free pattern month! I squealed when I saw that you contributed a pattern. I printed it out and can't wait to sew one up for my little girl.

  2. So, I just went over and printed the dress pattern, seeing that some pieces had to be put together. Assuming the 'ta' and 'pe' pieces must match, then realizing when together it spells 'tape'!! It's been a LONG day!! Thanks for sharing, I love your blog!! Bless you and your family!!
