The Jasmine: Peek A Boo Spring Tour & Giveaway

girls one shoulder dress
Welcome to my stop on the Peek A Boo Pattern tour and pattern giveaway!!
Introducing my version of The Jasmine.

A one shoulder dress with a clever tie to keep the dress on securely. Very important for 10 year olds by the way !
A simple and perfect style for summer.
Plus, it's a one bobbin dress. From start to finish this dress took me less than three hours. So it's perfect for a beginner....
I sewed this up in a cotton chambray in size 8. I bought a lot of chambray last season and love the casual but elegant feel it gives a garment.
Lily wears a size 10 or 12 in ready to wear clothing so this pattern is quite generous in sizing, similar to big 4 sizes. If I make another for Lily, I will narrow the pattern a bit. It's a wee bit voluminous for her.

Amy who also blogs about sewing and crafting at Naptime Crafters is the designer and creator of Peek A Boo Patterns. She has a knack for explaining the sewing process in an easy , simple, and understandable way. I enjoy her patterns. That's probably why this is the third I have tried.

This is also a good style for an older girl as it's stylish and not too babyish.
Here are two more of her patterns I've made from Peek A Boo.
Ruffled bikini
The Santa Monica Tankini
Stop by and check out the other blogs on the tour listed above and don't forget to enter Amy's pattern giveaway! She's giving away two sets of each pattern on the tour.
And while I still have tour attention, after the giveaway stop by The Train To Crazy where I am posting about sewing trends and making this high low galaxy dress:

Good luck!

  1. I love this! Simple and beautiful. Perfect fabric choice!

  2. Is this a new pattern in her shop? I love the tie on both shoulders. Your version reminds me of my childhood and the dresses my mom used to make for me. My mom used chambray often, and I agree, it has a great feel.

  3. I love the jacket pattern best but maybe because it's cold today?

  4. I love Lily's Jasmine dress.It is adorable.. I must try it for my 11 yr old grandaughter.Thank you for sharing.

  5. My favorite is probably the Oliver and olivia jacket because it's so versatile and i could use it for my son and daughter. They could match without being it being too much. Thanks so much!
