I was lucky enough to be able to test the Lorelei Women's dress pattern back in April. I made my Easter dress with this pattern using the underskirt and tulle for a more formal look and I loved it. It is a coral lace over a light pink satin. My girls and I even had a twirl-off after church. It was so girly and fun.
When the blog tour was announced I jumped at the chance to make another version of this dress. This time I went for a more casual look. This dress is made from a knit I scored for $3 a yard at Joann's during their 50% off red tag sale. This dress is lined on the top only and it just sewn straight up the back. Since it is knit there is no need for a zipper. Win, win, right?
So here are some pics of my knit Lorelei.
This dress is offered in 12 different sizes, 00 to 20, with cups A-DD. There is no need to do a FBA like in other patterns. For me that is awesome. I usually have to adapt a pattern quite a bit to get it to fit me. I'm short (5'4") and very pear shaped but I was able to make one size throughout the whole pattern to get the look I wanted.
I would recommend going down a size if you are using knits if it has a bit of stretch to it.
I can't wait to sew up some Lorelei dresses for my girls and their dolls for summer. They love easy to wear dresses and I love dresses that they can put on and take off without fuss.
I'd love to give a shout-out to my amazing photographer, Maddie. She did great giving direction and even knew when she needed to use the flash. I was super impressed. Yes, I know, I have the coolest 7 year old around. ;)
