Looking Forward To Spring with Petals and Pots and a Cirque Dress

Do you have a tried and tested sewing pattern? One you return to over and again? I have an extensive pattern stash with vintage and current patterns. Because of that, I rarely remake a pattern for myself, preferring to work my way through what I have. 

The Cirque Dress, Vogue 9112, is a rare exception which I have made several times for myself and a few for friends.

Gratefully, I have had to retire my versions of the dress because of continual wear. When I saw the Petals and Pots collection by Riley Blake Designs, I knew it was time to add mixed print Cirque dress to my wardrobe.

I chose 1-yard each of Weave Mustard, Geometric Blue and Main Blue from the collection.

This is such a fun dress with this mix of fabrics!

It gives that refreshing feel for which I was hoping.


The lines of the dress highlight the fabrics so well.


I modified the collar of the pattern so it is fully lined with a contrast that can be flipped

and folded to reveal one side or the other.

In addition to this being a fun quirky dress, it also has pockets!!!!! If that doesn't make this a winner, I don't know what does. 

The weather here is too chilly to get daily wear from this one dress until it warms up consistently. When the temperatures hit those characteristic triple digits, I will be ready. 

Happy Sewing,


  1. Such a cute dress, and the backdrop for the photos is perfect!

    1. Thanks! This was fun new spot to shoot. The backdrop takes away from the fact that it was a cloudy day.

  2. This is a super cute dress! You are making me want it to be spring.
