Josephine Sunshine sale

I have tested and sewn many Bella Sunshine Design* patterns, and I am always happy with the result. Bella Sunshine has many great girl patterns for both jersey and woven fabrics. They also have patterns for women, if you like to twin with your girls, this is your go to shop. Last year, the Josephine dress* was released as part of One Thimble issue 15*. For a while the pattern is already available at Bella Sunshine as well, and today, really only today the pattern is extra cheap. For just $5 and the code “sunshinesale” you can now buy this beautiful vintage inspired pattern.

The Josephine is a pattern for woven fabrics with split side panels that scream piping. The pattern can be sewn either as a dress or a top. The gathered skirt for the dress option comes in regular and vintage length. There is an extra wide hem on the bottom that you can let out if the dress becomes a bit to vintage short. The pattern has cute cap sleeves and has an exposed zipper as a sophisticated detail. The boat line neckline makes it a timeless design.

I sewed the dress in a fabric from the goodie bag from our sewing weekend. This beautiful flowy drapey fabric comes from Huis van Katoen. I could not find the fabric on the site this morning, but there are many other great options. I used some silver piping that I still has in my stash to show off the side seams. I have to admit that sewing on that pipping on a bit stretchy slippery fabric was not the most enjoyful experience, but the result totally makes up for it. If you use a regular woven, it sews up in a breeze though.

 So, if you want to scoop up this pattern* for a bargain, go and buy it now! It is on sale until midnight Sunday 25 March US time with the code “sunshinesale”. Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian). If you buy anything through my affiliate links (*), I get a small commission (the price stays the same for you), I am very grateful for everything that feeds my fabric addiction.
