Charleston Dress Testers

The Charleston Dress testers really outdid themselves!  I can’t stop scrolling through all of these lovely photos and admiring them.  Each one is so inspiring and beautiful.  I know you’re going to love them, so let’s get right to it!

Missy made this stunning floral View A and a pretty color blocked lace version with leather trim!  I swear I don’t have half the creativity of these ladies!  I never would’ve thought of that combo but it’s simply gorgeous.Charleston Dress by Hey June Handmade Charleston Dress by Hey June Handmade

Patti also made two Charlestons!  Her long sleeved view A is the softest coziest looking dress made with french terry.  And her fun striped version is so cute and summery – I love that contrast hem band for a little pop of color!Patti1Patti2

Emily made a gorgeous and simply dark gray version – perfect for accessorizing!  I love how she lengthened the skirt and made a deeper hem too, such a pretty feature!EmilyF

Teri used the panels for some color-blocking with her fun cotton/spandex print.  I just love that contrast black zipper down the back!Charleston Dress by Hey June Handmade

Tami is a showstopper in her simple yet gorgeous little black dress.  It’s so very Audrey, don’t you think?  Charleston Dress by Hey June Handmade

Stacey made up a solid and very wearable navy version for the office and a fun scuba knit print for going out!Charleston Dress by Hey June HandmadeCharleston Dress by Hey June Handmade

Jacque made up a fun summery sleeveless animal print dress.  Love how she paired it with a belt here!Jacque

Rebecca made the perfect casual dress for this spring and summer.  I really like how the colorblocking looks with the black side panels!

Tone made up a cozy and cute french terry dress with an added hem band and a really pretty solid blue dress.  She used the wrong side of the fabric to add a very subtle colorblocking effect on the bodice panels and pockets – isn’t that clever?Charleston Dress by Hey June Handmade

Rachelle also colorblocked, but with the stripes on the panels!  And instead of lengthening the dress, she added a fun little flounce!Charleston Dress by Hey June Handmade

Both of Pam’s gorgeous dresses feature a pop of lace.  The lace treatment really elevates the dress to something you could wear to a summer wedding or cocktail party!

Darcy made a visually stunning graphic Charleston.  The pattern placement on the bodice is so eye catching and perfect!Charleston Dress by Hey June Handmade

Crystal made a simple navy version, perfect for work, and then used both sides of a double sided knit to colorblock her pretty cream and gold dress!  Genius!Charleston Dress by Hey June Handmade

Crystal used a lovely blue floral for her sleeveless view A and also extended the colorblocking down onto the back of the skirt for a fun effect!Charleston Dress by Hey June Handmade

I love the neon accenting on Courtney’s Liverpool knit dress and piping!  Paired with her gorgeous dark hair, this is perfection!  She also played around with stripe direction to make a cute and casual view B.

    Hiya!

    Amazing pattern! Do you know if there are any online stores that carry the pdf pattern and accept cards without using paypal? Long story involving expat life, soft currencies, and basically paypal no longer being an option, even for their credit card option for non paypal account customers. Daft, but there it is. Is there a pattern store I can go through and just pay on a card without paypal? I’d love this and the Lane Raglan.

    Congratulations by the way. It’s a brilliant pattern.

    Thanks so much.

    These are lovely! I tried to use the coupon code, but it said it was expired 🙁

    Did all of the testers use a serger, or were some with a regular sewing machine?

      I used my sewing machine except for the hem, but it can be done completely on a sewing machine. Knit doesn’t fray, so using a serger is basically just to give it a finished look.

    Love them all. But I’d like to point out to Tami that Adrianna said the little black number she sewed should be MINE!
