There are three different sleeve options : long sleeves, short sleeves, and flutter sleeves. I love that - you could sew this dress in every season. I also really like the center panel. There are so many fun things you could do with it. I chose to cut mine on the bias.
The pattern has a vintage style collar, but I decided to leave it off this time after seeing Mie's version here. Instead I added some beige piping to the neckline.
I love the dress' center pleat.
The lines of the dress are so beautiful. I love how the dress has so much swing. To me, it gives it such a sweet and classic look... without being too sweet, you know?
The back finishes with an invisible zipper.
Last weekend Dan and Iris were out running errands together and Iris convinced him to buy her a pair of cowboy (cowgirl?) boots.
We've been working on trying to teach Iris and Tia the difference between play shoes and dress shoes. Man, dress shoes these days don't seem to hold up to anything!
These boots have been a good option for Iris, because they make her feel fancy while still being durable like tennis shoes. And they were inexpensive.
Maybe this speaks to my level of intexication, but I have to admit I find them pretty darn adorable on her, too!
The Eleena dress is on sale for only $7 until March 7th! You can find it here!
