I was soooo lucky to be chosen to test this dress. (I know, some people will say, no the designer was lucky to pick you, but really when there are hundreds of applicants I still say I’m lucky).
This dress is so sweet. I love the 50s vibe. The Lorelei dress by E-Beth Designs.
I would classify this pattern as advanced beginner/intermediate. A beginner could make this though but there are a few techniques that were new to me and I’ve been sewing almost daily for a year now.
There is also an underskirt with tulle attached to give a bit of poof to it. Tulle is a bit of a pain to work with, but the end result is nice 🙂
You also need to do a bit of hand stitching to attach the lining yoke, although I suppose if you really wanted you could just topstitch it down, but I like hand stitching.
The pattern pieces were adjusted after the test for the smallest sizes so that the yoke piece would end at the tip of the shoulders and not go over the sides like in these pictures.
The dress is just too sweet. And stay tuned, the women’s version was released today. And it’s on sale this weekend. There is also a discounted bundle (affiliate link)of the women’s and girls version available too. I will be posting pics of my dress shortly! Eeek!
See you soon!
