Do you remember this little dress? In the past few weeks, I’ve been working hard on drawing a free pattern in sizes 1-10 years for this dress. Today, it is finally online, more specifically over at Sew Mama Sew.
This version is made in some brand new fabrics from Birch: Acorn Trail by Teagan White. You can also make the dress without the pleating in the front, by simply using the front bodice lining pattern for the main front.
I called the pattern the Saudade Sundress. “Saudade” is a Portuguese word for feelings of nostalgia and melancholia, of longing for a person, place or time that has passed. Like the Summer days in which dresses like these can be worn…
The name was suggested to me by Rita from Conversas de Hermanas when I was actually looking for a name for my upcoming baby dress pattern. Thank you, Rita! Saudade is also the title of a beautiful pop song, Saudade by the Belgian band Arsenal (check it out here, you’ll love it!).
