The Swansea Top and Dress is the newest pattern from Lil’ Luxe Collection and I got to test ot for Lucy! I just love the style of Lil’ Luxe Collection and this dress is no different…so cute and classic with gorgeous details. It features an empire waistline/gathered skirt with a button front, a little ruffle at the neckline and gathered sleeves with a little ruffle at the hem! It also has a 2″ thick hem, which I love!
The neckline is finished with bias tape, and the bodice is not lined, although it would be easy to switch that up if one were so inclined! The pattern also has optional belt loops that Lucy was so excited to get to wear a belt (she picked out a 3-pack of belts at Target and wanted me to take her picture in all of them…lol)
I used super wrinkly linen fabric for this and despite taking the pics promptly after ironing, it’s still super wrinkled!
The pattern is on sale for just $7 so be sure to check it out!
