Hey guys! I’m the second stop of the exciting and most epic Sewing Block Party blog tour, happening all through November! 31 bloggers from all over the world get to share their take on their favorite Petit A Petit patterns. For my post, I introduce to you the Friday dress by Petit A Petit + Family! I was also able to test this lovely pattern, and let me tell yah- we are hooked over here! (This pattern will be released very soon, I’ll make sure to update the link right here!).
The Friday Dress has so many fun options within the pattern. I went with option A and long sleeves. I also sized my daughter up a little according to her measurements to the size 3-4 so she would have a little room to grow. (She’s 3 years old). I’m really happy with the final fit, I didn’t make any pattern adjustments.
(* Just a note: My back pleat is an error due to testing, it should be flipped the other way, it’s since been corrected in the pattern!).
My fabric is from Hancock’s fabric, which is currently rebuilding their company into an online only based fabric store. This fabric was actually left over from a dress I made for myself last year. I’m so glad I had enough to make my daughter a matching dress!
I love all the details of this dress: the adorable collar, pocket, waistband, elastic sleeve cuff, and the gathered skirt. There are too many good combination options within this pattern. Now I need to try it in a few other versions!
This was my first ever Petit A Petit make, and I’m obsessed, why have I waited so long!? Now I just have to try the new Loveralls pattern, released just yesterday. Don’t forget to take a look at all of the other fabulous patterns they offer in their shop!

This dress is STUNNING!! Absolutely gorgeous! And yes, Petit a Petit Patterns are the best!
That fabric makes it! I really like the inverted pleat, actually, and may do that when I sew one up. Lovely job Sara!
So, so good. Especially your choice of fabric. Love that dress! I’m blogging the Loveralls – but I need to make one Friday (or seven?), too. Glad I’ve found you. I will follw you from now on 😜 #sewingstalker
How stunning does this dress look!!!
I LOVE this dress so much! The fabric is so cool and goes so well with this style. It’s so great that you had enough left over for a matching dress. All your makes are always so fabulous, and this is no exception!
No words!! A million heart eyes, this is definitely one of my favourite Fridays yet! Amazing fabric choice. ❤
