Ansley Top/Dress Blog Tour

Lucky me, I get to be a part of this Ansley Top/Dress Blog Tour twice. You can see my other look over at Sew Cool.  And can I just say, I love this one a little more and I really like this great pattern!
This pattern is so great because there are SO many options! 2 dress options, 2 top options, 6 sleeves, 3 collars and 3 hems.  And the other great thing is that you get from size 9m to 14...all in one pattern!  It is seriously a great bang for your buck.
I did the high/low hem...which is such a great look with this loose top/dress pattern. I think the only thing I would change is to add an inch or two to the front girls are just so long in the torso and it hits them just at a weird length there. Oh, and get this, I made the same size for both of them. I'm not sure if they will want to share or not...

I added the pointed collar, which was so easy to add. I did add some top stitching around the collar and placket, which wasn't in the's hard to see, but it's there.

And I just made up my own sleeve option...because there weren't enough already:)  No, I just thought the long loose sleeve look would go well with this fabric. I just took the short sleeve option and elongated it to be long enough. Then I just added a casing and elastic at the cuff.

As for the fabric, the floral was from a shirt that I picked up on the sales rack for $2 and the stripe is some light weight woven that I picked up on a random WalMart stop looking for a tiny screw driver set and I just really liked the look of it.

It was rather windy and chilly this morning when I took the pictures...hence the not so happy outside shots and the smiley inside ones.  But I do like the look we put together.
As for the pattern, it's a well written pattern that has the layering print options of not just printing the pieces you need but the sizes as well.

So there you have it...the Ansley Top/Dress, which you can go get with the discount code, ILOVEBLAVERRY10. Then go and check out the other amazing creations with the tour.
