Last month I sewed up the Aldaia Dress from Pauline Alice as part of my guest posts for the Minerva Crafts Blog. I love how this dress turned out! I was so inspired by the sample shown on the pattern cover that I wanted to sew up a very similar version.
As an indie pattern designer addict, I am always looking for new indie pattern designers to try. When I was browsing the Minerva Crafts Website, Pauline Alice’s Aldaia’s Dress jumped right out at me. So much so that I wanted to make the exact version on the pattern envelope! The pattern sample is Version C in a bright pink. It is just so beautiful, I couldn’t get it out of my mind!
What I liked about this pattern is that while I was dead set on making View C there three very different views included in the pattern. View A is a v neck dress with elbow length sleeves with bands and a short paneled skirt. View B is a wrap style bodice that is sleeveless with a below the knee pencil skirt. View C, which I chose, was a jewel neckline finished with a facing, short sleeves and a 6-gore skirt. You could make three very different dresses with each of these views which makes the pattern so worth it!
I am chatting more about my love of this pattern today on the Minerva Crafts blog click here to read more! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!
