Flip this Pattern Tinny

I know I’ve mentioned how much I love Flip this Pattern, right?  Well, I’ve sewn along again.  This time it was the Tinny Dress from straight grain.

I didn’t’ do anything terribly exciting with the pattern this time.  There are so many options with the pattern (three collars, two sleeve cuffs and three skirt options!) that I couldn’t think of anything I’d actually change.  I did add a belt and side seam pockets, though.

I really enjoyed this pattern.  It sewed up quickly, but it doesn’t skimp on detail at all.  It looks professional and the fit is spot on.  The instructions were clear and I love that the pattern came with a print key so that I could print just the pieces I wanted from the pattern.  Perfection!

The fabric I chose for this was Nordika by Jeni Baker and a coordinating print.  I’ve had my eye on this fabric for a while and I was just waiting for the right pattern to put it with.  Tinny seemed like a match made in heaven.

I used the beautiful tulip cuffs and the open collar.

I added a belt and tied a small bow on the side.

and I also added hidden side pockets in the same coordinating fabric.  Now Miss can carry her treasures with her.  Usually Littlest Pet Shop or coins she’s found laying around.
