Sewaholic Saltspring + a GIVEAWAY!

I am giddy with excitement over this post today, y’all!
When I first saw the Saltspring dress, I knew immediately that I needed to sew it. And I needed to sew it quickly because Summer was coming to a close. The Sewaholic Saltspring is  GORGEOUS maxi-length dress that blouses itself at our waist, has adjustable straps, and pockets. THE mother-load y’all. And to top it off, its a pretty simple pattern with great instructions. The Saltspring is the first Sewaholic pattern I’ve ever sewn, and I was highly impressed. I’m hoping to sew up another (maybe The Cambie?) soon!
(and I do apologize for the photo-overload, but Miss Sarah Delanie is just too dang talented that I couldn’t choose which ones to pick!)

  1. I don’t have a specific fabric in mind, but I think I would make it with a cotton voile. I love your dress – it’s so pretty!

  2. It’s a beautiful dress and looks great on you!

  3. I am in love with the dress and the photos!

  4. Great fotos :) I just ordered patterns from sewaholic yesterday, but did not get the saltspring. Your version is definitely making me regret not getting it. I would love to win it, or else I might have to wait for christmas :)

    I have the most amazing cream colored drapy rayon in my stash that would make the most amazing goddess-like saltsping :)

  5. Wow it’s so cute. I’ve been trying to convince myself to branch out at sew a maxi dress.

  6. pretty!

  7. I love that dress, it’s so adorable! I think I’ll have to make myself one next summer!

  8. PS: I would love to make my dress out of vintage sheets!

  9. Your version is gorgeous. There are so many fabrics flying around in my head…I think I’d go with a dark/black and white gingham to start and sew up the shorter version of this pattern. It would be perfect with tights for fall.

  10. i have some lisette lawn fabric from joann’s that i would love to make this dress out of!

  11. So, I kinda want/need this EXACT dress… :) After I saw your instagram pics of this dress, I went out a picked up the pattern. Now to find the time to sew it before winter…

  12. You look beautiful! Such a gorgeous dress! If you get a chance, please link up to my linky party:

  13. I have some pretty pale pink floral rayon that’s been in my stash for forever, but I think I would buy some of Miss Horner’s new fabric line to make this dress out of. Thanks for the chance to win the spattern.

  14. CutCutSew made a knit version and that sounds dreamy, as does rayon challis. Wish this pattern was released earlier in the summer. The shoulder ties make it perfect for nursing mothers who would normally have to forgo dresses!

  15. Love this pattern and fabric choice. Thanks for constant inspiration and this giveaway opportunity.

  16. Beautiful photos, I’d love to win this pattern

  17. This dress is soooooo amazing! Don’t you love when you’ve had a fabric in your stash forever and then you find the PERFECT project for it. Makes the waiting so worthwhile! Beautiful dress, beautiful pics, and beautiful model! Did you end up putting the zipper in?

  19. Gorgeous! Now I really wish I could sew!

  20. Really adorable dress! Thanks for the giveaway. I’d love to make it in a voile or lawn, but realistically it would probably be a quilting cotton.

  21. You are just too cute!! Beautiful dress!!

  22. This is gorgeous! You could totally upstage a bride in this!! LOL I love the drape of it and the fabric is so flattering on you.

    Thanks for the giveaway and how perfect since I just cranked out some tote bags and burp cloths!! I am sewing again!! Woo hoo!

    Blessings to you and Hubs!

  23. Such a sweet dress! I love the idea of using voile – just have to find one I like!

  24. I just got some Anna Maria Horner Little folks voile that I would love to use for this pattern!

  25. I would use Joel Dewberry bungalow fabric!!

  26. What a lovely dress! I’d like to make one for my daughter from a nice soft floral vintage cotton.

  27. Beautiful!!

  28. You are soooo talented–this dress is gorgeous! I would love to win this pattern~~

  29. This whole post is so full of beauty! The dress, the seamstress/model, the photos — all beautiful! Well done, and thanks for the chance to win!

  30. This is gorgeous! I have a light pink/peach fabric with white flowers that I think it would look great in.

  31. I have loved everyone’s version of this dress and yours is no exception! I probably would sew it up in a solid jersey knit fabric? Maybe. That’s the hardest part of sewing for me…pairing a pattern with the fabric!

  32. Love it!!!!

  33. Love this dress!

  34. Whoa, amazing dress, fabric, photos, girl! Love everything.

  38. I LOVE that fabric! This is for sure on of the best Saltspring I’ve seen on the blog-o-sphere! I’m pining for a fabulous black jersey or even soft silk Maxie Saltspring for fall.

  39. Oh wow – your version of the Saltspring is BEAUTIFUL! I’ve actually just found your blog through the Sewaholic website which I’m super excited about!!! If I were to win this comp (btw thank you very much!) I have a couple of lovely floaty cottons that I think would be perfect for it!

  40. I just saw your dress on a round-up Tasia posted and I just couldn’t get over the fabric. I love it. I’m new to your site so I also wanted to say hi and that I will be coming back!

  41. A drapey rayon.

  42. I think it definitely requires some sort of voile… Not sure which one though!

  43. Amazing frock!
    I am dying to make this one up :-)
    lovely pictures too… xx

  44. maybe some voile? I would have to shop for some!!!

  45. I would love to the dress out of a a solid cotton and then maybe add a layer of lace on top- maybe even shorten dress so I could also pair with cowboy boots and leggings when it gets colder!

  46. You are SO gorgeous, and that dress is amazing!!

  47. I love this dress and I loved it so much that I made it only the short version I didn’t had enough fabric. Funny enough I had the same fabric at home and always was to afraid to us it. But now I can’t wait to wear at our staff Christmas party ( I live in Australia )
