Iris from Oekeboeleke is an upcoming talent in the sewing patterns world. When she launched the Lucy Dress, I was immediately curious, and applied as a tester for the bigger sizes. The pattern is made for cotton-like fabrics, and combines a skirt with nice pleats with a special collar detailed bodice.

I like that the pleats are repeated at both the front and the back. I lengthened the size 110 for my 4 year old Lucie a little (3 cm), and then it was perfect for her; a little wide at the chest but ok the dress is supposed to be light and breezy.

I added pockets since the girl can’t do without. Together with this Soft Cactus retro cotton fabric, it gives the dress a nice vintage touch. The complete dress is buttoned-up, which I like a lot. Super handy to dress and undress, certainly when you use press studs like me; Lucie loves to do it all herself!
