The Eleena Dress

Hi, again! :) It seems like I keep breaking all the great rules of blogging. I post either too sparingly or, like today, I post twice on the same day. But hey, I have always been a rebel, haha. 

This is the Eleena dress, one of my favorite dress patterns ever! This is the dress I made during the pattern testing and I am showing it today as part of the Eleena Dress Tour. I love the vintage look of this pattern! But I decided to make a modern edgier version of it. (I am a rebel, remember? hehe)

The Eleena dress, a pattern by Coffee+Thread. 
You can get it at Coffee+Thread pattern shop or at UpCraft Club!

Green and black poplin, striped crepe. Black velvet for the collar.

The Eleena dress is a vintage looking A-line dress, inspired by the 1960's. It features a gorgeous inverted pleat at the front and closes with an invisible zipper at the back. There are three sleeve options: short, long with cuffs and flutter sleeves.

This pattern is available on sizes 2 to 12.

The pattern is amazing! I love all of Olga's patterns. They are some of the best out there! Perfect fit, perfect pattern pieces (they have notches and they match perfectly), and amazing instructions.

Make sure to stop at all these blogs during the tour to check all the amazing versions of this dress!

  1. I love all the fun things you did with this dress; the black on the back, the stripes on the center panel, and the pretty ribbon tie. So cute and fun!

  2. I reallyyyyyy love this Eleena. But I have already told you that ;-)

  3. The dress is simply stunning, Sara! I love it so much! Thank you for being on the tour!

  4. I love your version of the dress, this emerald green is just amazing and so beautiful on a red head (I am one too and absolutely love this colour). I might have to make a blue version for my little Alice (who funnily enough looks a little bit like Alice in Wonderland)

  5. I love this! I love the stripes and the colour looks amazing with your daughter's beautiful hair.
