How’s everyone doing? Yeah….me too. After spending a weekend sewing masks I was desperately in need of something to clear my head and cheer me up, so when Sinclair Patterns asked if anyone wanted to test their new FREE pattern I was all in.
The Valley Skater Dress is a fun just because dress and yep, it’s free.
And….pockets. Free pockets.
I had this striped abstract print in my stash. I really love the color but I wasn’t sure if the print was for me. I am so happy I went for it though, I could not be more thrilled with this dress. Not to mention after weeks of living in yoga pants and t-shirts, it felt great to do my hair and get dressed up even if it was only for these pictures.
Honestly, even if this wasn’t free I’d buy it and make a hundred. It’s loaded with skirt, neckline, and sleeve options – check out the lantern sleeves in the pattern, so cool! – and has a great pleated detail to the knee length skirt.
This is my new go-to dress pattern, available here. Also, while you’re there everything else is 20% off right now.
