The day is finally here BSD fans! We have had SO many requests for both of these patterns, that I know you are going to be so excited for this. Our two most popular patterns, The Alice Pleated Dress and the Shara Dress & Top, are now available in Ladies sizes!! And the fit on these is perfection! Take a look.
The Alice Pleated Dress for Ladies
It’s not often that you get a woven pattern that fits so well with minimal adjustments. But the Alice is that pattern. It comes in sizes 0-20 with 7 cup sizes (Cups A-G!). I think the fact that most people don’t need to do a bust adjustment is what helps make the fit so good right off the bat. I made myself an Alice for Easter, and it is wonderful! I cannot wait to show it off this coming weekend.
Don’t you love it? I think my favorite part is the pockets. That way I can carry my keys but still look posh. I’m not big on carrying purses, so that’s a nice feature for me.
Our testers also did an amazing job on their Alices. Everyone worked really hard this test. Look at their photos below:
Sahara Dress & Top for Ladies
Next up we have the Sahara. When the girls version came out last month, at least 40 of you requested a ladies version stat! It comes in sizes 0-20 and includes a full bust adjustment for those of you that need one. I must say this is quickly becoming a staple in my wardrobe. It is such a quick sew and super flattering. I love how you can wear it casually with jeans or leggings or you can dress it up with heels just depending on the fabric you use. The pattern comes with two different necklines, three sleeve lengths (plus sleeveless!) and three dress lengths. I made a sleeveless one for my final. I promptly wore it to date night that weekend. I love it that much.
Once again, we had a ton of fabulous testers that really helped perfect this pattern. I don’t think there is a single person that this garment doesn’t look flattering on.
If you already have the Sahara Play Dress & Top for girls, you know it currently only comes in two garment lengths. Well, that’s about to change because we have since added a tunic length! Some of our original testers were nice enough to test it out for me. Take a look.
