Lil Luxe Collection LIL LUXE DRESS

 

LuxeDress2

Not so recently I was welcomed into the testing group for Lil Luxe Collection. When I was able to join in on this pattern test I was excited and nervous.  This group is filled with some amazing sewists, photographers, and bloggers to say the least. It is a lot of pressure to hang with these lovely ladies and their sewing creations.

Jessica Bustos designs modern patterns for little fashionistas.  The patterns are much more of the style I find myself creating as my sewing skills have developed. You can see many Lil Luxe Patterns in my Sew N Style post found here. (I’m not longer blogging at the blogspot address.)  Jessica encouraged me to join in at the end of the Sew N Style series and I’m glad I did! I stitched up quite a few items for Peyton to wear this fall.

Let’s get to the dress!

The Lil Luxe Dress

AHH! It’s amazing!  I have never sewn up anything so beautiful and the Littles have never fought over who was going to model until this dress.

This pattern included several skills and materials I did not have experience with. Yay for learning new things!  This dress includes double circle skirts, use of tulle for the underskirt (optional), box pleats, blind hemming, and horsehair braid.  All of these were new to me, but the tutorial includes great detail so that even the inexperienced can be successful.  Jessica even includes a tutorial video to help create the pleats!

Features:

  • Sizes 18 months – 8
    • Larger girl’s and women’s sizes will be coming soon!
  • Scoop Back with Button Placket
  • Sleeveless or Capped Sleeves
  • Pleated Double Circle Skirt
  • Optional Tulle Underskirt
  • BONUS Maxi Skirt and Zipper Directions Included

My Version:

My version was created using an ivory colored Swiss Dot that I picked up for an unknown reason because that’s basically how I buy fabric.  I did the cap sleeve option to provide some extra coverage for the weather.  I love the finished look.  It is classy and elegant while still being youthful. #love I’m going to be ordering another color of Swiss Dot to make a second version.  One Easter Dress completed, two to go.
