The Lotta dress pattern tour: Stitched together

Hello Compagnie M. readers!  I’m Rachel and I blog at Stitched Together.  I was thrilled when Marte asked me to join her Lotta dress tour.

The Lotta dress is such a great pattern.  I love the clean and modern feel of it.

Given that the pattern has so many options, there are innumerable ways you can mix and match.

I was having a hard time deciding which options to chose, so I asked my husband to weigh in.  When I showed him Marte’s
version here, he gasped – in the most masculine way possible, of course  ;)
and said something like, “Those pockets are so cool!”  He was genuinely
impressed.  :)

I chose Palos Verdes voile in La Venta for the bodice.

I lined the bodice and pockets with a light grey solid I had on hand.

The skirt is Kaufman Carolina Chambray.

I went with the button closure for the back.

My daughter, Tarikua, loved her new Lotta dress so much that she didn’t want to take it off to change into her pajamas.

And I love it at least that much, too!
