When I received the Lotte Martens fabrics that belong to the textile box from Le Chaperon Unlimited, I wanted to know straight away if it was possible to sew this dress with the small piece I had in hands.
The deadline was rather tight so I started drawing the dress pattern myself (with the ‘basic dress’ from SVDH 1 as a starting point). I had just a very tinny piece left, but it turned out the perfect dimensions for my idea.
The shape of the collar turned out a bit more ‘straight’ but I like the result anyway. :)
I combined the Pattini fabric with a basic jeans style one from Jo De Visscher. Both fabrics are rather thick, so the perfect match for a wide gathered skirt.
Some extra golden piping (a left-over from this project) was enough to convince Lisa immediately that she looked like a princess. I love this fact that the dress is basic and chique at the same time. This way she can wear it for school & for special occasions. With the golden sandals she borrowed from Nore, she was ready to go to a B-day party!
