Introducing Billie Jean .....

Today is the day........

I  cant wait any longer.....

I have  to tell you about  the very first Bluegingerdoll  sewing pattern:
Billie Jean

Billie Jean is a beautiful 1950s vintage inspired dress, with a touch of old Hollywood glamour. Featuring a fitted princess seam bodice, designed to enhance the waist, and an alluring and flattering neckline design.

She is a multisize pattern, and features 2 gorgeous skirt variations of the dress - so you get to keep your  sweet, sexy and fun, practical parts of your brain happy!

So here they are....

Version 1 is a fully lined figure hugging wiggle dress, flattering all the right curves.



 Version 2 is a fun full gathered skirt, with a lined bodice and practical in seam pockets.

Both close with a lapped zipper at center back.


The bodice and neckline design are absolutely stunning and extremely flattering for all body types, and the princess seams  enhances your waist line. Overall the dress accentuates your good bits and is made to hide your bad bits!

I  have also  worked hard to  create easy to follow instructions for both versions with clear & concise images, so you wont be able to go wrong with putting this beauty together. I am quite proud of them and hope that they make your Billie Jean sewing experience fun & easy!

 Billie Jean  is also REALLY comfortable to wear on an everyday basis, i made sure of this and  have worn a Billie Jean to work, weekend activity's, grocery shopping - a whole of bunch stuff!
I am hoping she becomes your ' go to ' dress on a regular basis.....Oh and she is made for day or night, cause she suits a big variety of fabrics! Yay!
I am even more excited for the plans i have following the release of the pattern ... we are talking sewalongs, tutorials, decorative ideas and of course some comps thrown in! 

I am planning  to have  Billie Jean  ready and up  for presale by the end of April,  for you to purchase and have in your hot little hands!
But at the moment i am just ironing out the last  few bugs that have unexpectedly infiltrated the process....For example we encountered one of these bugs with the  photo shoot scheduled  on Easter Monday.... the sun decided to be a no show and the day looked bleak and dreary - was not going to work at all!  So we  headed home to do some studio shots, i think the photos turned out fine!   I am hoping to get a  few more shots of  sample dresses  in the next couple of weeks to show you, as well the envelope design... all the good stuff!

If you like sign up  for the newsletter, Bluegingerdoll Bulletin.  for news  on the upcoming Billie Jean presale, future pattern releases -  which is hot on Billie Jeans heels! and all the bits and bobs that may pop up.

So there we go - Bluegingerdoll's first sewing pattern - Billie jean... Hope you like?!

Have a great weekend!
