I'm so excited to be a part of the Eleena Dress Blog Tour by Coffee + Thread. I first fell in love with this pattern during testing. I made the long sleeve version for my oldest and she absolutely loves it. You can read about that version here.
My youngest definitely has more of a bright "look at me" personality and this fabric was perfect! It's part of the Origami Oasis Collection by Michael Miller. I loved it so much I bought it in the blue colorway as well. ;)
The only thing to note about the fabric is that it's a little in the sheer side. This dress is fully lined.
I made her the size 7. To be honest, when I printed it actually printed a little small. I didn't even realize until I but it on her and the sleeves were skin tight. OOPS. Since it still fit everywhere else I just decided to cut the sleeves off and use bias tape instead.
I went with a lace zipper instead of the invisible zipper listed in the pattern. I love the pop of color that it adds.
This is such a fun dress and completely different from the first version that I made.
There are still a couple days left on the tour. The other bloggers that have already posted are listed as well. You should go and check out these other amazing ladies. You won't be disappointed.
The pattern is on sale for $7 until March 7, midnight, EST. Keep scrolling and don't forget the enter the giveaway below!!
