.:Edelweiss Pattern Tour:.

You know what one of the perks is to being a sewing blogger? Sometimes you get invited to be part of pattern tours, and you get to sew up the most beautiful creations that make you look really good, even though it had nothing to do with you and everything to do with the pattern.

That’s the case with the Edelweiss Dress from Hey June that I got to sew up.

It certainly doesn’t hurt that I happen to have a few darling models at my disposal, but seriously could this pattern be any cuter?


I love, love, love the sweet ruffle straps on this dress. The way they run down the front of the bodice, and down the back just makes me happy. Really happy. You know we love a good ruffle around here, and to have one like this is even better.


That’s not the only sweet detail of this dress. The back has a simple button closure, that for some reason, just seals up the dress perfectly. I love the little buttons, and how it just adds one more little reason for you to fall in love with this dress.


Adrianna has written such a wonderful pattern. Each step has picture instructions along the way, making it easy for even those most beginning sewist to sew along. The cutting instructions are easy to understand, and even give measurements for some of the pattern pieces that are just straight cuts.

And really, when your end result is something this fantastic, you can’t help but give yourself a pat on the back.


Reece loves this dress, and didn’t want to take it off for the rest of the day. I really love the dress and enjoyed using the pattern, which is a double bonus since I’ve got two more sweet girls who NEED one of these dresses. That’s right. I said need, not want.


If you are loving this dress as much as I am, then head on over to Hey June to pick up a copy of the Edelweiss Dress pattern for yourself. And while you’re clicking around, be sure to stop over at crafterhours to see what some of your other favorite sewing bloggers did with this pattern.


And in case you are wondering, yes, it is totally okay – and appropriate -  to sing Edelweiss while sewing.


  1. ohhhh soooo cute! Love the prints!

  2. Love this, Summer! The fabrics go so prettily together and your model is adorable!! I had to laugh about singing Edelweiss, I couldn't stop singing it the whole time I was sewing - and now it's going to be stuck in my head again!!

  3. Thank you again Summer! Your little blondie is such a good model! Check out that hip pop! :)

  4. I'm in the singing-Edelweiss-while-sewing-Edelweiss Club, too! Super cute, Summer!
