Art Gallery Fabrics on a Summer Blog Tour with a NEW PATTERN from BG!

Hello! Alexis here from My Sweet Sunshine and I have the honor of Guest Blogging on Brownie-Goose! Why do you ask? Well I am participating in a Summer Blog Tour with 7 other AMAZING Seamstresses.

 I am also excited to introduce BG's newest pattern, The Allie Oop!!! Wahoo!!! This new pattern is destined to be a classic. If you have been a BG fan for a loooong time you will recognize the Allie Oop from when Amy was still selling clothing. I have been a stalker fan from way back then!

 BIG shoutout to Art Gallery Fabrics for being so generous and giving us all fabric for the Summer Tour. We all so appreciate the time and effort it takes to work with us and getting out the fabric quickly!  

 Alright onto the good stuff.. I ended up making two Allie Oops (because the pattern is da bomb) Here is the first:

The Horse LOVES the dress too, he is smiling :)
Features of the Allie Oop:
-Sizes 6month-12yr
-Keyhole Neckline
-Button loop or Tie

-Dress or Top that can be paired with your favorite BG Shorts
-Straps Wrap around the back to button
-Fixed or Functioning Buttons
-Inside looks as clean as the outside-All bodice seams are enclosed
-Size Chart
-Finished Measurement Chart

My Original plan for this dress was a Maxi Dress but after trying it I thought it best fit a shorter length. I did make this one 2" longer then the instructions call for. It now falls below the knee. Amy included instruction on how to easily shorten or length the hem.

Fabric: Ohhhh MAMA, I LOVE THIS FABRIC COLLECTION (AND Bari J.)! Yes I am shouting at you! I have a chance to meet her and her daughter and they are both the kindest people you will ever meet! Art Gallery Fabric/ Bari J.- Anna Elise

Ok , onto the second Allie Oop I made...

I made this version almost per instructions the only change is I cut the bodice without the keyhole. I wanted to feature the writing on the fabric so I thought the solid bodice would work best. I LOVE it (literally written in her chest-LOL).

Wondering about these adorable Halos my daughter is wearing?? They are made by Little Sparrow Bow . Check her out!

Fabric: If you have not checked out Sew Caroline's Latest Collection -Happy Home then you maybe living under a rock, just kidding! This collection is fun and vibrant ! Allie Oop and Happy Home were made for each other :)

I love a curved hem! Classic touch to finish off a great dress.
Thank you Amy for letting me take over your blog today and letting me sew up your latest BEAUTIFUL creation!
