Lotta dress: 3rd pocket & back option!

By Thursday,24 April,2014Blog, Lotta dress

Since I’m launching my Lotta dress pattern next Monday and still haven’t shown my last pocket option, I’m publishing two blogposts today! The reason why I didn’t show you this dress yet, it just because this Lotta was not sewn for one of my own girls… I made this Lotta for Nohre, the very cute little girl of Bjorn’s ex-colleagues Benjamin. He’s this teddybear-type-of-father that take good care of his daughter and is following my blog for a while now… A couple of weeks ago he asked me where he could buy a ‘Compagnie M. style dress’ for Nohre’. At first I didn’t want to commit myself, but after making 3 Lotta dresses for Lisa & my own Nore (which was named after Nohre), I though it would be interesting to sew for a bigger girl. So at the end I did!

Benjamin and I went fabric shopping together at Julia’s. A funny thing is that he didn’t dear to enter this shop by himself: a man alone in a fabric shop!? No way! Once inside the decision was easily made. I wanted to use tho Free Sprit fabric for a long time already and Benjamin loved it as well. I’m so happy with the choice we made. It suits Nohre very wel!

I think Nohre has a very special expression. She never stands still! But after chasing her for a while at the playground, I got the right pictures to show my last Lotta dress options.

I added side seam pockets to repeat the folded detail again. It’s a more subtle option that I personally love most. At the back, I closed the dress with buttons an button loops. The ideal solution for people that are frightened to add a blind zipper or to make buttonholes.

I’ll be launching my Lotta dress pattern this Monday. A very last but important detail I would like to share already with you: next to the cap sleeve option, I also added the bodice pieces with regular armhole openings. This way you can also mix and match this pattern this the sleeves from the Mara blouse & Louisa dress! So the Lotta is the perfect summer dress, but can be worn in other seasons as well…
