How is your week so far? It’s nearly a holiday weekend here in the states, so hopefully some of you are gearing up for a weekend with friends and family! I’m hoping to finish (or rather start!) up some independence day dresses for my girls before Saturday’s festivities roll around. Jenn from Jennuine Design sewed up a patriotic Blue Ridge Dress (tunic version) that’s subtle enough to be worn all summer- go check it out here! I’ve got two testers participating on the tour today, so be sure to click through to their posts! At the bottom of this post I’m sharing some versions made by testers who either don’t have blogs or chose not to participate in the blog tour. They’ve all done amazing work and were invaluable to making the pattern what it is today! Melissa Malice- Rebel and Malice I first saw Melissa’s work while we were both testing for another designer. She makes some funky fun stuff and I always love to see what she comes up with! The floral on this one… ooh lala!
Maria Figueroa- Creative Needle and Threads Maria never ceases to amaze me with her precision and impeccable sewing. Maria sewed the lovely dress in my listing photos on Etsy that is made with Guatemalan fabric, and she made this one below for her final version. You know I’m a fan of gold trim, so I am in love with this dress!
Megan Dove made this one for her tomboy- and get this- she approves!
Rebecca Rico’s gal is pretty happy about her new top!
Danielle Clark’s version is ready to rock an independence day BBQ!
Laura Kelly made some matching cousin dresses!
I’ll never tire of seeing new versions of the Blue Ridge Dress, so be sure to use #blueridgedress, #hellohollimakers, and join the Hello Holli Makers Facebook group to share what you make with the Blue Ridge pattern! Thank you for reading! One more day of the tester tour and we’ll say farewell to all these wonderful ladies, sniff sniff…
