Robe Lora // The Lora Dress

Do you know the sewing magazine La Maison Victor? If you live in French, German or Dutch speaking European countries you probably do. Unfortunately the magazine is not available here in Denmark nor does La Maison Victor offer shipping to Denmark, but having seen so many gorgeous versions of LMV's probably most famous dress - Robe Lora - I really wanted to make one. The grass is always greener, right?! A sweet German instagram friend of mine kindly offered to send me her copy of 'the one with the Lora' - and finally I could join the Lora Gang!

It's a super simple dress that can be made in both knit and woven fabrics. I chose a burgundy diamond quilted jersey which I bought a couple of years ago from Minerva Crafts - still available I see.

I had to take my dress in a bit and added a couple of cm to the length but apart from that no alterations were made. If I make it again I might take in the sleeves a bit more and eliminate a little pleat close to the pockets (you can't really see the pleat in these photos)

I'm wearing it with another me made item; a turtle neck stretch lace top based on this Jalie pattern. The fabric was an eBay scoop.

  2. It's beautiful! I live in Belgium, the origin country of La Maison Victor, yet I have only sewn one pattern out of their magazines. We are on the same level now ;-)
