This sweet girl is outgrowing all her dresses which is fabulous for little sis and means I get to make new Sunday clothes- sounds like a win-win all around.
She requested a maxi dress and was drawn to this lovely blue floral linen I’ve had in my stash for awhile. I knew the Lil Luxe Dress from Lil Luxe Collection would be just what she envisioned.
I personalized this pattern a couple ways.
First, I raised the scoop in the back by two inches. While I love the scoop back, I wanted it a bit more modest to wear to church and it was a super easy modification.
The sleeves are supposed to be lined but my fabric was a little thicker and I didn’t want to add extra bulk.
My skirt is just one piece, the width of the fabric. Not so much a design choice as a lack of fabric thing.
I absolutely love this dress and she does too. I’ve got another one planned for little sis and know it will be a go to pattern for dresses and tops in the future.
A little behind the scenes on this shoot- Snow was forecast for the next day so as soon as she got home from school we did a quick fitting. I had to take it in a bit and hem it up before rushing her to the park between her after school commitments.
The lining may or may not be safety pinned down 😉 A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do! Tell me you’ve had those moments too, right?!!
The key to all the smiles this shoot was having her bestie along. Cutest little friends!
I highly recommend this fun pattern and make sure you check out the ladies version too!
