I got really really lucky 🙂 I got to be on the Lil Luxe Pattern Tour! There was only one unlucky part and that was that I had to pick which pattern to sew! I mean really! It was so hard to choose!
I picked the shorts in the end because I have so many dress patterns for Molly right now and I need a little variety in her wardrobe. The pattern comes with two, well three really, views. The skort, the shorts with cuff and you could do the shorts without the cuffs. The shorts have cute little slash pockets and the skort has hidden pockets. Molly loves pockets. She needs places to keep all her rocks 😉
I can’t say enough good things about this pattern. The instructions were very detailed (it even had directions to make an adjustable waist! That is so wonderful for children who grow up and not out… I know some others out there feel this pain) and the pattern comes together very quickly. I didn’t time myself but I sewed it all in one morning.
The pattern pieces went together perfectly. I did make a little mistake and put the skort portions on the wrong way (early morning sewing…) but I added some pleats and I’m still overly happy about the way this one turned out! Besides, even loves to modify a pattern, right?
I used a grey quilting cotton with silver designs from Joann’s and I love the way it turned out! It had the right amount of body to really give notice the cool angular edges of the skort. To finish off the look, I appliqued the “Rudolph” head on a t-shirt (more on that soon to come). I think together it looks perfectly “Chirstmas” without beating you over the head with candy canes and trees.
And now for the part we are all waiting for 😉
