Watermelon Starlight City Dress

Here's my baby girl wearing the 'prettiest dress ever - right dad?'

It's the Starlight City Dress designed by Lil Luxe Collection. The pattern comes in two versions; for knits or woven fabrics to be bought seperately. As you can see I opted for the knit version mainly because I had the gorgeous watermelon print jersey fabric from Wcollection that I knew would be PERFECT for the STC dress. The fabric is so so soft - a super quality! I feel tempted to make Wilma a 'To the Moon' dress as well. Or something for Luna....a Luna should have a luna printed something, right?! Sorry, I sweat out my great sense of humor in Italien heat! Yeah, we just got back from holiday and I miss the sun so much already. Denmark is so cold. And rainy.

According to the size chart Wilma's chest measurement puts her in a size 8 but her height puts her in a size 12, so I went for the size 8 bodice but lenghtened it to a size 10/12 and used the length of a size 12 skirt (as I recall it).

Look at the back detail of the dress - the true star. That twisted detail is so good! The fit is pretty perfect and it's fairly easy to sew. The ultimate summer dress.
