Pattern Review: Delaney Tunic/Dress by {Sig}nature Creations


I recently folded to the peer pressure and purchased the {Sig}nature Creations Delaney Tunic/dress pattern. I’ve been seeing it EVERYWHERE lately, it’s the new “hot” pattern. And truly it did not let me down, I made one fore my daughter and it is stinkin’ adorable!

It was super easy and definitely someone with beginner skills could figure it out, there are lots of helpful pictures in the tutorial of how it’s put together. It is also a super quick project so if you’re like me and decide you’re little girl needs a new outfit the day you need to be at a party/special trip/ whatever, you could definitely get it done super quick. It took me about an hour from picking fabric to cutting and sewing. And seriously I just LOVE how it turned out.
If you are super crafty (and good with pattern drafting, based on measurement) you probably don’t NEED the pattern, basically you are given the measurements for the parts, because they are all rectangles. I know I can, but If you’re sewing for a boutique (like I plan to in the future) its definitely worth the investment, since it has the measurements for the pieces for sizes 0-6m all the way to size 8 (and she even just released a second Delaney pattern for sizes 8y to 16y (so all the way up to almost adult sizes!!!).

I finished it differently than the pattern is intended, my daughter isn’t thrilled with bulky bows on her back, so I extended the band and added snaps in the middle, but, next week, I hear, she’s going to be releasing the add on pattern, which gives 3 more ways to finish the closures, a different type bow, a button closure, and a lace up closure. All of them look super cute and my daughter will be getting more in each closure one I can pick up the pattern.

So final verdict: GET THIS PATTERN! Its seriously adorable. And versatile enough to be worn all year round, summer without anything under, and fall/winter/spring with a shirt under like an apron/pinafore.
