The Eleena Dress

It has been a long time since I last posted in the blog, but that doesn’t mean that things have been quiet around here, quite the opposite! One of the things I have been doing was testing the Eleena dress, which was released today.

The Eleena Dress is a pattern designed by Olga from Coffee and Thread with a lovely 60’s style that with the different options available and using different fabrics and combinations, you can get several looks.

The pattern is available from size 2 to 12 years, with or without the collar and three different sleeves. The options I tested were short sleeve with collar in size 5.

It might appear that the dress is large in the chest and it is, but that is just because M’s chest measurements are a few sizes down, it is not the pattern’s fault 😉

The fabric I used was a piquet from here that I love and think it worked wonderfully for the dress but for the collar I think I should have used a lighter fabric, in order to avoid some bulkiness.

This is a test version so, after, there were some improvements, which gives me an excuse to make another one 😉

I honestly love the style of this dress and its versatility. You can have different dresses for all seasons just changing the fabric and works perfectly on its own or layered. Now the best part is, you can get the patterns in sale until Friday!! 😉

Have a lovely week 🙂

  1. It is a gorgeous dress, so feminine and light. It sounds like our girls have similar body shapes. Her clothes has a little room around her chest too. All the better for playing and running around I say 🙂
