Lil Luxe Holiday Tour

YAY! Today is my turn on the Holiday Tour of Lil Luxe Collection and I get to show you my version of the Starlight City Dress. This is my first time getting the chance to sew up one of Jess’s patterns, so I wanted to make sure I stuck to it to see how it turned out. LOVED it! Seriously! Her designs are so modern, chic and FUN! My daughter was so excited when I told her I would make her a dress.

A few of the pattern features:

  • Computer drafted with graded sizes 18m-8
  • Layered pattern tiles so you can print only the sizes you want
  • Step by step illustrations with easy to understand instructions
  • Unique collar detail
  • Twisted back with breezy opening
  • 2 sleeve lengths
The dress went together so easily. I felt that the directions were very easy to follow, and great for that confident beginner to dive into. I liked her style and way with the patterns so much that I have bought a few more! 

For my details: I used a gold activewear and green peachskin fabric. I was torn on the combination, but it turned out great together! Festive, yet still chic enough to be worn year round. 

Adjustments/Changes:
The only changes I made was shortening the back elastic a couple more inches. The gape was too much for my super skinny girl. I made the size 5 length with size 3 width. And I left the sleeves raw since the fabric is a knit. 

This pattern is amazing! I love the high fashion look of the pattern, and already am thinking about variations. I will be making many more!
