I love vintage styles! When I find a pattern that takes me back to those elements and is done beautifully, I instantly get giddy. I tested the newest release from Ginger House Designs. This beautiful top/dress is called the Queen Street Dress (inspired by a Charleston SC restaurant) It has all the elements I love about clothing made mid-century. There are 2 sleeve options, 2 lengths, 2 styles of skirts, a peter pan collar and optional pockets with a button closure. It is a gorgeous pattern that is very easy to assemble. The sizes range from 12m-8 so lots of room for use there. The first pattern from Ginger house designs was the Emerson dress and top that I was on the blog tour HERE. As you can see, she has a eye for beautiful vintage looks with a modern spin.
The testing experience was great. She was on top of any issues, listened to our thoughts and ended up with a professional and easy to understand pattern.
I used a mint and white quarterfoil print in cotton, with white accents and pink buttons. I decided to do button loops rather then button holes because I am still trying to get comfortable with them, Why do I have such a fear of button holes? I love the combination of the mint color with this silhouette. It complimented it all so well.
