Hey June! It's June! Tour! What's that? You say, well... The lovely and talented and mighty hilarious Adrianna from Craterhours and Hey June, released another fabulous pattern. You may recall I am a fan of her awesome patterns and have made them Here and Here (and a million more not-blogged but often worn times) Her patterns are awesome, so well written and detailed, I just love them. Her style is always this awesome mix of clean modern looks and vintage feminine charm.
The Edelweiss is no exception. It's both modern and vintage, and clean and frilly and it can be customized in so many different ways. For this one, I made the top version. (it can also be a dress) I made a size 3T for Abbey since she is pretty thin, and I should have added some length perhaps (I didn't) I wasn't really thinking about it even though the pattern suggests that you think about it since I made a smaller size for her chest, I should have added more length for her height. For now, it's perfect (especially with shorts) and that's all the matters.
pieced bodice version, since it's fun to add a little pop of color or detail so why not. I love the denim and the ruffles and the sweet butterfly print (Hello Pilgrim by Lizzy House which I have been hoarding) I love the way it all came together.
Edelweiss? Who am I kidding of course you love it, and you want one, so here is where to find one
Check out Hey June and follow along over at Crafterhours for more Hey June! It's June pattern tour. (because then you can see everyone else's awesomeness as well)

Have you guys heard of the shorts on a line series? We are excited to be participating this year! Last year I was all sick and pregnant and likely on bed rest so I was pretty pumped up to be able to participate this year! It happens to be on the same day that the new and improved Honey Pie Bloomers pattern is being released! Yep it's in the shop today! (Along with the Abbey Jacket :) I thought in honor of the re-release and shorts on the line, I would do a pattern hack. (also you can find a giveaway of the pattern if you follow the series ;) Just saying...
pattern and the bloomers became cute little bubble bloomers with big side pockets because this girl is always bringing a slew of little toys with her everywhere she goes.
This post is part of shorts on the line sewalong hosted by imagine gnats and small + friendly, sponsored by Jo-Ann, Pretty Prudent/Pellon®, and Hawthorne Threads.

Summer Breeze Dress Pattern
You will also need:
about 1/2 yard of fabric a little more if your print goes one way like mine, (I had to piece the back together)
1/4 yard for lining
A onsie (optional I used it for this version)
I have a few fun variations coming up!
This one was made with a fun ice cream print by Lisette found at Joann Fabric and Crafts
