Tricia summer dress pattern and tutorial

Tricia dress
I have been waiting for sooo long to post this dress here.  I have been waiting for the perfect spring day, full of sunshine....and I am still waiting.  My lovely British Columbia does not want to bring us a full spring this year.  Fortunately, my backyard trees are relentless to this kind of weather and they are already turning into beautiful colors! (I guess that it is something great to learn from mother nature)

Tricia dress is particularly one of my favorites of the collection so far, and that is why I called it as my mom: Patricia.  It is my mother's day gift for her, since we are far far away from each other.

It is a stunningly beautiful dress, easy to use and sew and it will be your favorite for this season: The shape of the top, together with the A-line shape of the skirt enhance the figure amazingly and the neckline makes your arms look longer and thinner...Awesome :)

I have to thank my husband for taking the pictures for the forth time this week.  He did a great job!

As you can see, I am also wearing the beautiful Clutch Make it Yours from  You can find the review, pattern and contest details here

It will print 20 pages. Wait until all the pages are printed before taking them from the printer; it will make it easier to assemble.

Sometimes, there are problems with the printing process and the patterns come in the wrong size (a little bit smaller).

To avoid this, check the 1 inch square inside of the front bodice pattern. It will help you to see if the patterns are the correct size.
