Sew & Tell: Anywhere Dress

Today we are featuring Nichole of bluebird & the boy and her version of the Anywhere Dress! The Anywhere Dress is a wonderful knit dress that moves effortlessly from season to season and is a great sew for beginners!


I feel so privileged to be participating in the Go To Patterns Sew & Tell series today! I had the opportunity to work with the Anywhere Dress from Go To Patterns – a beautiful, classic dress that sews together quickly.


The Anywhere Dress offers various sleeve length options. I sewed a size 10 for my daughter, using the long sleeve option. (We are, after all, in the middle of her first Minnesota winter!)

I used a soft, velveteen knit from an online fabric store. I love the color; the ice blue is perfect for this time of year (and reminds my daughter of Elsa from her new favorite movie)!

The sleeves ended up being a little long (she is right in between sizes now), but I prefer it that way. It gives her some room to grow…

…and as you can see, some room to move! It has already become a new favorite for a girl who would live in dresses if she could, and her mama, who wants her to be able to be active and play in comfort! This dress will indeed take her anywhere!

(Now to convince this Snow Queen that jackets and mittens are not optional…)


We love it, Nichole! Beautiful job – thank you for sharing your talents!
