Marbella Dress Pattern Blog Tour

I recently had the privilege to test sew this lovely pattern, the Marbella Dress pattern.  This pattern for me was love at first sight.  It can be so many things! I can be a professional work dress, a dress to wear to a wedding and other fancy occasions, a going out dress, a dress to wear during the day… You name it!!

The pattern has lots of great features: Princess seams in the bust (making bust adjustments super easy), an invisible zipper in the back, a tulip shaped skirt, fully lined and unlined options and pockets!!  While it’s not a beginner pattern, the instructions really walk you through each step with very clear illustrations and directions.

I love that the pattern has different bodice pieces for each bust size.  It definitely makes it the muslin process easier!

This version that I sewed up is from Joann’s spring line.  I can’t wait to sew it again in a knit fabric to make a version that is a bit more casual for day to day wear.

I also think this would make a great holiday dress in a thicker fabric  (maybe with some sparkle??).
