Sewn by Jamie, Jaime Christina

Pattern: Jamie’s self-drafted pattern
Fabric: Anna Maria Horner Social Climber
Favorite Dress Features: Jamie writes, “My favorite features about this dress would be the running stitch in the waist line and the ruffle at the bottom of the dress. I used a rolled hem over-lock stitch to finish the edges of the ruffle. I enjoyed the way the teal was popping in the dress, so I used teal colored thread in my serger for the ruffle.”

Jamie designs her own patterns and is currently in the process of making a sewing pattern for this dress, due to come out in July. You can find her additional patterns on her blog and her impressive clothing set on Flickr.
