It’s 2016 and we’re starting the year with a bang!! Our first pattern of the year defines Lil Luxe Collection and is aptly named The Lil Luxe Dress. It tells you who we are, what we aim to be and so much more…this dress is the definition of Luxe!
The Lil Luxe Dress is a blend of Lil Luxe Collection’s most popular bodice and a beautiful, couture circle skirt like you’ve never seen before. I’m not a ruffles kind of gal so we’ve brought you an alternative to ruffles and gathers that will have everyone ooh-ing and ahh-ing over your dress. The tulle gives lift and body to the voluptuous nature of the horsehair braid enhanced circle skirt. Embellish your bodice with rhinestones or glitter appliqués for a simplistic yet over the top look. Go big or go home! Guaranteed you will be so impressed with yourself!!
Options include a cap sleeve or sleeveless bodice, with hidden button closure. Want more use out of this dress?! Try the bonus maxi dress at the end of the tutorial where we have included instructions for a paneled maxi length skirt with two zipper options – invisible and exposed.
