Saltspring Dress: Another round up of your versions!

You guys. It’s been so fun looking at your Saltspring dresses. I love all of them! Grab a cup of tea and settle in, because I’ve got tons to show you!

sew-carolineThese photos pretty much speak for themselves. Caroline’s dress turned out absolutely gorgeous, and her photos and so envy worthy! Check out her blog, Sew Caroline.

poofytailThis lovely lady was a pattern tester. She chose a silk fabric for her dress, how brave! I like her creative solution to take in the bodice with little pleats at the neckline. You can see it all on her blog, Poofytail.

girlguydogcatLook at how happy Janette from Girl Guy Dog Cat looks in her dress! I’m really into the subtle neutral print. So lovely!

lazylinchen-flickrAline made two versions, look at how different yet beautiful they both are! Love the playful second picture where she shows both dresses side by side. Cute!

full-time-vixenThis is our second Caroline today! Not including me, duh. Caroline at Full Time Vixen also lives in Vancouver. And she has a lovely flowy blue Saltspring. Love the red lipstick too, go girl! See her full post here.

fake-it-make-itCheck out this knit version by Carolyn. I’m in love with the color, and I’m loving all these knit versions I’m seeing around the blogosphere.

lindsay-tailorLindsay made a really cute floral Saltspring! Isn’t it gorgeous? This print is so amazing! She also made another version, see it here. Awesome job, Lindsay!

blue-sundayLove Nisha’s version. The more I see different versions, the more I love the look of this dress in a small scale floral print. The coloration in this print is great, it could be styled for both summer and fall and totally work both ways! Thanks for doing the sew along with us, Nisha!

symon-sezHere’s a breezy floral version by blogger Symon Sez. Very cute! The print is easy to wear and super adorable.

makizysewsThis lovely version by Makizy Sews is actually cut from a large sundress that she picked up at a thrift shop. I love the idea of repurposing a pre-loved garment into something new.

annettetiretteHere’s a gorgeous maxi version here by Anneke at Annette Tirette. So elegant, and I love the print!

peachy-seamTwo Saltspring dresses? Yes! I am in love with the print choices, and it’s so cool that she made a version for herself and one for her daughter (and then documented them together!). Thank you Anna! Check out her flickr page, Peachy Seam.

cassandraHere’s a really pretty maxi version on beautiful Cassandra over at Cassandra’s Crazy Creations. The light colored print is so summery and sweet!

cut-cut-sewKelly’s jersey version is so pretty! I love her thin little braided straps. Check out her blog, Cut Cut Sew.

disasterinadressHazel from Disaster in a Dress made a second Saltspring dress, and this time it’s a maxi. How beautiful does she look? Thanks Hazel!

Well that just about wraps up my round up posts! If I missed your dress, let me know in the comments, I’d love to see it!

    So cool to see myself on your site. Had a great time sewing this dress. I see many miry in my future.

    Beautiful! I do love the floral ones!

    Thank you so much for posting my version of this lovely pattern! I’ve been wearing it quite often, it’s surprisingly easy to wear for a maxi dress!

    So many Caroline’s and Carolyn’s in this post – love that! And the dresses too, of course. :)

    Love seeing all of the different versions! Now I might need to make a knit one too! I finally took photos of mine but i had a minor tragedy. i trimmed my straps down too much when trimming my seam allowance on the inside of the dress, and the strap pulled apart from the bodice the first time i wore my dress. i was able to hand stitch it back together, but i’ll definitely be reinforcing the points where the straps meet the bodice next time with some extra stitching and not trim it down so close! there will be a “next time” because i do think it turned out really cute, so i’m sure i’ll try making another =)

    Look at all the versions of Saltspring dresses. Everybody looks wonderful, but I can’t get over Caroline’s. That fabric is right up my ally.

    I loveeee Aline’s Hawaiian fabric! Aline, if you’re reading this, where did you find it? I need it in my life!

    Hey thanks for including my silk version! Love all the other dresses. Now I’m itching to make a knit maxi dress to wear this Fall.

    This is so exciting! Thank you so much for posting my picture! I also love to see everyone else’s take on the pattern and pick up ideas for future versions.

    Hi Caroline,

    I forgot to email through the modified maternity version! It doesn’t take too long to convert into an empire line dress with a little extra belly room!
    Love this dress!

  11. Janette September 23, 2013 at 7:40 pm #

    So many lovely versions (and fun new blogs to check out!) Thank you for including me!

  12. Christine September 24, 2013 at 9:29 am #

    Loving all of these versions! Wish I had made one over the summer as the weather is now starting to cool down, but look forward to making this pattern up in the spring!

  13. Amy September 24, 2013 at 12:52 pm #

    What a round up! So many beautiful – and unique! – Saltsprings all over the world. Yay!

    Lovely dresses! Just finished my first Saltspring yesterday in readiness for a hot Sydney summer. Comfiest thing I’ve ever made! Just wondering if others omitted the zip like I did. With an elastic waist it seems completely unnecessary.

    My favorites in no special order. The top dress by Caroline, Carolyn’s a great solid color, Makizy Sews with the bold blue, and Annette’s, love the maxi and the print.
