I was able to recently test the Women’s Boheme Sky Dress by Striped Swallow designs! First of all I have loved Mandalynn’s fun bohemian styled patterns for awhile now. Awhile back I purchased the Coachella Shorts for Kina and I and love them! When she came out with the kids version of the Boheme Sky Dress I instantly bought it. The smallest size is 2T, and since Kina is not that old yet, I haven’t made it. However, I know I will make her lots of these fun dresses when she gets older!
When I saw her post the test call for the women’s version I was so excited! The dress features a tank option, short sleeves, elbow length and long sleeves. It also come with the option to do a knee length dress, a midi, and a tunic. The dress I made was the long sleeved dress version. It came together so quick! I love an easy sew! The bodice is lined because there is an option for a nursing modification, which is a big bonus! I am really starting to love wearing dresses, so even though I don’t need that option now, I know it will be great for later. Not only is it great for nursing, you can also wear it while pregnant too! I love the versatility of this pattern!
When I tried it on after I made it I didn’t want to take it off! I was so comfy and cute! I didn’t make any modifications to this version, but I may try to finish the neckline with bias tape or a neck band next time since I don’t need the nursing modification right now. Just a thought, I don’t know if I will actually do it! As far as the pattern itself, it is very nicely put together and easy to follow. I have my favorite indie designers and Striped Swallow Designs is definitely one of them!
With the release comes a sale on this pattern! Now through Monday get $3 off this pattern using code WBOHEMESKY. Or if you want the kids version and the women’s version, use code BOHEMESKYBUNDLE to get both versions for $16!
I am going to start posting the size I sewed and my measurements along with any modifications I did. I think it is helpful to see others post this info. That way if I am the same size, I can see what all they did.
