Angelic Li’l LDT

This little girl had her winter dance recital the day we took these pics.  She wore an angel costume for her recital and I spent the day thinking how appropriate that was.

For this version of the Li’l LDT I used a cream sparkle ponte from Joann’s.  I had originally gotten it for a cardigan but it was really meant to be this dress-  I heard it calling to me 😉

As I sewed this up in the wee hours of the morning, I was nervous it would either be fabulous or look like a fancy nightgown.  With every project I cut out it’s so nerve-wracking hoping it turns out like the vision in my head.

This one was exactly as I’d hoped.  Once she got it on and styled I fell even more in love with it.

I did the cowl neck, bishop sleeves and high low dress version.  The front of the high low has been lowered a bit in the final version.

The cowl and bishop sleeves together just make such a classic, sweet combination.

This pattern will be such a go-to pattern in our house.  The girls love all their versions and I love how quick and easy they are to whip up.  It’s so fun to think of all the possibilities and how it will work for every season.
