Juliette Blog Tour


I’m super excited to be joining the Juliette Dress & Top Blog Tour today.  The Juliette Dress & Top Pattern is a collaboration between Sewpony and Kneesocks & Goldilocks.  I have never had an opportunity to sew a Sewpony pattern, but I’ve admired them lots of times and I’m a huge fan of Kneesocks & Goldilocks on Instagram…  I have totally been stalking the progress of this pattern on Instagram.


The pattern comes in sizes 12mo, 18mo, 2-10 and has options for a dress or top as well as the ruffle collar or plain neckline, and also includes an option for a faux placket.  Two closure options are included: a button/loop closure or bias tape ties.  I chose the bias tape ties (love these!) and obviously the top with ruffle collar 😉


When I was asked to be on this tour, I immediately went to my computer and ordered this fabric…usually I spend a lot of time thinking about my fabric choice, but I knew immediately that this pattern needed to be made in this fabric.  The fabric is from the Fiesta Fun Collection by Dana Willard for Art Gallery Fabrics and I ordered it from Hawthorne Threads.   The one thing I changed from the pattern is I eliminated the seam down the back and used a facing to finish the slit in back.  I did this just because I didn’t want to break up the pattern in the fabric on the back.


I hand-sewed the small pom poms onto the collar and the hem…my sewing machine doesn’t do well with the small poms!




Lucy girl really loves this…she’s a big fan of all things ruffly!  Check out the pattern (Juliette Dress + Top Pattern) and use the code DRESSEDINSEWPONY to get 10% off any Sewpony pattern!  Sewpony also has a sewing contest going on now through June 2…check out the details here

  1. I love this top so much!! I can’t believe you hand sewed the pom poms…dedication! And totally worth it!! Thanks so much Shelly for joining in!

  2. I too have issues with baby poms. I usually try to struggle through with a zipper foot. I love the bright colors of this fabric and the poms are icing on the cake.

  3. Love this top Shelly. When I saw your pic I thought you were a legend simply because of sewing pompoms on the machine. MIne hates them also. Now knowing you did it by hand… Wow is all I can say 🙂

    1. Thank you! Haha, I am not a legend…I totally prefer to hand-sew than by machine…I think it’s laziness, since it’s so relaxing to sit and hand-sew. I hand-sew anything I can get by with!
