Saltspring Dress: Second round up of your versions!

We’re thrilled to see so many versions of the Saltspring dress pop up all over the place. I’ve had so much fun reading through your blog posts and seeing the lovely photos of your dresses. Here are some more versions from around the blogosphere!


I’m pretty smitten with Kim of Reves Mecanique’s maxi black silk version. I probably would never have decided to make a full length black dress. But it’s so chic! I am converted. Her full blog post can be found here.



Beccy made a maxi version with a tie belt (girl after our own heart!), and posted it on her flickr page. Love the floral print!



Amy from Sew Well is at it again! Can I just say that I love that I’m seeing multiples. We are so, so thrilled that seamstresses love this dress enough to spend their precious time making more than one version in such a short span of time! This time Amy did a stunning maxi version.



Isn’t Christy adorable? I love the bright graphic print, and she looks so happy! See her full blog post here.



The always hilarious and gorgeous Lauren of Lladybird made a feisty animal print version, and she was one of our pattern testers! I love it.



Jen’s floral version is so lovely! Okay, can I just say how cool it is that Jen has a blog with her twin sister Elena? Seriously, why can’t I have a twin sister who also has a penchant for sewing? Check out their blog, Tea for Two.



Rachel of Boo Dogg & Me made a really sweet maxi version. See her full blog post here.



Abbey from Sew Charleston has made not two, but three Saltspring dresses! Her first was featured in our first round up. I was going to show her second version here. But then I saw her third. It’s absolutely stunning! Thanks Abbey for being such a sewing super star!

Want to make your own Saltspring dress? You can pick up the pattern in the online shop. Or grab one from one of our amazing retailers, full list here.

If you’re getting started sewing your dress, don’t forget we did a sew-along!

We’re definitely going to do another Saltspring round up. I already have more versions on the queue to show you! If you’d like to share your version, it’s not too late, here’s how you can do that:

    That black silk maxi is so chic! I love how she took a comfy casual pattern and made is to sophisticated, and in black it’s a great transition piece for fall. I want one!

    The black is a counter-intuitive choice, but it works so well! I love this pattern…

    I love seeing all of these different versions. There are so many great dresses out there! I also like to see how people modified the straps. It gives me some ideas for my next Saltspring :)

    These are all very cool, I love that this pattern just looks so pretty on everyone! I am itching to try a blouse version after seeing yours, so pretty! I (finally) blogged about the Saltspring I made last month-

    I think I am too old and fat for this style of dress.

    Thanks for featuring me! Love my Saltspring – I’ve got a Liberty version planned for Christmas.

    Thanks for featuring my Saltspring Tasia! I just love the pattern so much. You’re right, Elena and I are so lucky that we both love sewing and can share it together on our blog! x

    I love show and tell!

    I just have to add that I while I read this post, the voice in my head was the announcer from The Price is Right. “..has made not two, but three Saltspring dresses!”

    Another collection of beautiful dresses. What a great pattern!

  14. Kim September 10, 2013 at 12:35 pm #

    Thanks for showing my dress! I’m really loving it, and the fact that I can dress it up or down, I even wore it out to eat some burgers the other day :)

    These are all lovely! I’m tempted to try and make one for a party I’ve got coming up soon, might be just the incentive I need to have a go!

    I hope everyone saw the press shots of Prince William and Catherine last night. They hit the headlines as it was the first time they had both left the new baby Prince George.
    The back bodice of Catherines dress was so similar to this pattern.
