I'm Jennifer Serr, owner and creator of Bonjour Teaspoon Sewing Patterns. While on a couture tour in Paris, I met a very special little pug named Teaspoon. Teaspoon now represents all things cute and fabulous to me, and thus inspired the name of this enterprise. Now a little dog named Magic keeps me company in the studio, when I'm not making patterns or teaching kids how to sew.
I made this special version of the Mia Dress to celebrate our newest vendor, Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics. The dress was made using Cotton + Steel fabric, all available in store and online through Stonemountain! The bodice is a soft cotton jersey knit, and the skirt is made from three different rayon challis fabrics. So pretty and easy to sew with.
|Bodice Fabric: It's a Plus in Cream. Skirt Fabrics: Rayon Gemstone - Pink, Rayon Birch Floral - Periwinkle, and solid blue rayon challis.|
While the Mia Dress may look complicated, it's actually rather simple — a knit bodice sewn on to a gathered skirt with ties attached to a waistband that is sandwiched in the waist seam. Using multiple fabrics, you can create a unique look every time you make it.
The Mia Dress and a selection of the Bonjour Teaspoon pattern collection is now available at Stonemountain & Daughter. You can find out more about me and the classes we teach at The Sewing Room in Alameda by visiting our website.
Until next time, and Happy Sewing!
