As Seen On : Jo Sews

You guys, I am IN LOVE with this dress version of the Briar by Jo of Jo Sews!

She extended the pattern to a dress length, and kept the original crop length as a color blocked effect. How genius is that?! And did I mention that it sparkles? I’m pretty sure it couldn’t get any better.

Head on over to Jo Sews to see more of the dress, and to read about how she made it.

So cute – wow, I love that idea! I just made the cropped version over on my blog and wasn’t sure if it suited me personally as much as the long version does, but maybe I could make it into a dress like this… or layer it with another pretty dress. The fabrics she chose are beautiful. Awesome job, Jo! Off to check out her blog. :-)

I would definitely buy this pattern if I could figure out a way to get around paying so much for shipping (international). It’s not available on Amazon or any of the US retailers suggested by the maker. I have been craving the pattern for several months.

oh no Faye! you poor thing!
The good news is that we are currently trialing US fulfillment – meaning that in a few weeks all orders that are placed by US residents will ship from a US warehouse. I’m really excited – it should be lower shipping costs and will definitely mean quicker shipping times!
I just wish it was ready now! I’ll do a big announcement when we launch it :)
hugs! meg xoxo

Oh wow, thank you Megan!! I go on holiday for 4 days and come back to find this! It was a fun make – I’d definitely recommend having a go for all those who aren’t 100% comfortable in the cropped length.
Thanks again for the feature!!
