The last full week of July is Frontier Days here in Cheyenne Wyoming. As "The Daddy of them All", Frontier Days is a 10 day long outdoor rodeo and cowboy celebration. All things cowboy are celebrated and I'm so excited to get in on the action!
In trying to decide what to do with this HUGE celebration I knew it had to be something really great. HOWEVER, seeing as we're still trying to get settled into our new place, I also knew I couldn't go too over the top because there just wasn't enough time. I spent a lot of time browsing pinterest and looking for ideas. And then, I knew that what I needed was a versatile pattern that could be the same, but different for my 3 girls. So this week I have 3 versions of the Tadah! Pleatie Dress and Shortsuit (PDS for short) for your viewing pleasure. Each day, I'll review the specific details of the options I choose.
I have to apologize in advance, because I'm sharing the versions out of order. BUT, to save paper, I always sew the biggest size first and then cut the pattern down as I go. So, up first is the PDS as a blouse. Now, if you own this pattern already, you know this isn't one of the options that comes with the pattern. BUT, it is on the Tadah! blog and it was the perfect little touch to show just how versatile this pattern is. The skirt paired here is a simple gathered skirt.
Due to the insanely hot weather we've been having, I opted for the sleeveless blouse WITHOUT pleats or collar. I figured any extra piece of fabric would make the blouse just too hot.
