Petite Stitchery & Co - Taffy Dress

Guess what?! The Taffy Dress is officially released! And it's currently on sale until Monday, June 25th!

I absolutely love the drop waist of this dress. It's super cute and something I haven't seen very much of. I'm also pretty sure the plain dress version is one of my new favorites. The fit is seriously perfect. It has a nice relaxed fit that makes it not seem super dressy. You, of course, can dress it up, but I think it is the perfect casual dress! I recently got some cherry DPB fabric that I was pretty sure I had my mind set on the Boho Babydoll... but I'm pretty sure it needs to be a Taffy! 😍 However, I have way to many projects going on, too many tests, and my sewing room is a disaster (Again!). So hopefully I'll be able to cut into my pretty cherries soon!



Good news, I didn't have to do too many modifications do this dress, which makes everything way nicer! I did, however, lengthen where the drop waist hits (by 2 inches), mainly for modesty coverage (#mormongirlproblems). I also lengthened the plain dress by an inch. And that's it! (If you couldn't tell, knee length dresses are my JAM.) For the drop waist version I used Liverpool fabric and for the plain version, Double Brushed Poly (DBP), which is heaven. Seriously. 

     

The Taffy Dress also has this cute little gather in the sleeves! I love it but also hate it because it takes more effort...gotta do the basting stitches...gather it...pin it...okay, maybe I just get a little lazy sometimes because that doesn't sound that bad...


We even had some visitors from a few ducks! Probably because they saw my son's cake...(We did a smash cake photo session as well because he's now one! Happy birthday little man!) 


   

There is also an option for an open back, but I tried dropping the regular neckline 2 inches, so it would hit just around my garment top. LOVE it!


This little guy pecked my leg...rude!
