The Cherry Dress

The Cherry Dress was originally created in 2008 and has undergone several revisions as PDF patterns become more advanced. When Cyndi Mays, editor of Sew Beautiful Magazine contacted me about featuring The Cherry Dress, I knew it was due for yet another revision and adding sizes! I am so very honored to have it featured in the Summer 2014 issue of Sew Beautiful Magazine!
The Cherry Dress is a classic and sure to be a hit with summer sewing! It is a button-front, knife-pleated dress with piped puff sleeves and a piped Peter Pan collar. The center back of the dress has an inverted pleat with the same knife-pleats across either side of the inverted pleat. 
The button-front has cherry stems and leaves embroidery in which the button holes are built into the embroidery motif. The red buttons create the cherries! The embroidery motif is a free download at Sew Beautiful Magazine! The design file is also included in the ePattern and is available at Southern Stitches.

Hi Laurie,
I brought the magazine to our local SAGA chapter Monday evening (the day the mag arrived), and everyone I showed it to agreed that you definitely hit the ball out of the park with this dress! We all love it! My granddaughter is a tall size 6, so I hope you get the larger size pattern out soon before she outgrows it.
