The Sweet Lilly dress features a pintucked bodice, I am a sucker for any pattern with pintucks! It's got elbow length sleeves and some sweet ruffles on the sleeves, bodice, and hemline.
I had bought some chambray months ago with plans to make something for myself, but had not gotten around to it yet. It is this chambray (affiliate link), and I really love it, I think I will be ordering some more to make that something for myself! It is lightweight and has a really pretty drape to it.
I will warn you, this pattern is not a quick sew. There are lots of pieces to cut, both fabric and interfacing, plus all that ruffling (and I really hate ruffling!) It has some really nice finishing techniques, but they take extra time too. All the seams on the sleeve cuffs and ruffles are encased and the bodice is lined and hand finished at the waist and sleeves.
This little dress will be perfect for fall! It looks so cute with her boots and will be cute layered with tights or leggings as the weather cools off...if it ever cools off!
