Now on to the fun!
Although Marisa of the blog Thirtynine is experiencing winter weather "down under", she still managed to sew up two beautiful versions--a dress and a top--of the Sunny Pattern that her daughter has enjoyed wearing. She was part of my pattern testing team and used a lovely red and white voile for the first dress that you can read about here. Marisa sewed up a second, modified top version that includes eyelet trim and pin tucks! To read her review and see how the top turned out, head over to Thirtynine now!
Next up is my super talented friend, Amy! Amy is the designer and owner of Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop. I love it that even though she has a gazillion patterns of her own, she still volunteered to test my design and to be a part of the pattern tour! She is the sweetest person who has been very kind to me through the years and over the last couple of months when I would bug her with business questions! Visit the Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop Blog to see Amy's Sunny Dress and her adorable daughter Anne wearing it!
My final guest of the sewVery Sunny Pattern tour made a top version that takes me back to my childhood instantly. Susan from Made by Momma found the fabric for this retro inspired top at an estate sale, and she embellished the front by adding a bib detail with trim and buttons. Again, I'm so excited to see others add their own flare to my pattern design proving its versatility. Susan also tested the pattern and made a fun, Option B dress in size 8. You just have to see the top and the dress she made, so hurry to Made by Momma now!

Have fun sewing!
