Happy Monday Lovelies!
I’m so so so excited to share with you one of the latest pattern tests I’ve been working on: The Eleena Dress by Coffee and Thread. I was super excited to be choosen to test this pattern because just LOOK AT IT! The design is simple yet so darling!
“The Eleena dress is a 1960s inspired A-line dress that features an inverted pleat and an invisible zipper in the back. There are three sleeve options to choose from – short set in sleeves, long sleeves with cuffs and flutter sleeves. The unique collar completes the look. And is available in sizes 2 through 12 years.” – cited from the website.
I made a size 2T according to the size chart and Abbie’s measurements.
The Eleena Dress was an absolute joy to sew up for several reasons (If you’ve been following me for a while, you know these already): 1. You know how much I adore vintage sews! 2. I love that the bodice is lined, you know how much I obsess about lining my garments3. You know how much I love installing invisible zippers and 4. I love collars!
So finding 4 of my very favorite things in one pattern was quite a treat! And Abigail loved it too. She’s gotten into the habit of assessing my sews and then deciding if it needed something more, in this case, she insisted it needed a pearl button on the collar – so of course I obliged. I must admit, she has a good sense of style. lol
But enough of my banter, let’s get into some action shots!
Isn’t it the most adorable thing?! I also really like that the pleated style allows for fabric pattern mixing, that’s another of my favorite aspects of sewing because half the fun is finding fabrics that perfectly complement each other.
If you like this pattern as much as I do, be sure to snag it up while it’s on sale! The sale starts from now until Friday (1/29/2016). You can find it on Coffee and Thread’s website HERE.
Well, thats it for today guys, thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a super productive Monday and a fantastic rest of the week! xoxox
