Bellevue Dress meets Milk and Honey

Posted by Ellies Handmade on

When one of your favourite fabric designers releases a range that includes bunnies, strawberries, squirrels, pastels with a  shimmery gold sparkle you can't help but fall in lurrrrve... which is exactly what happened when I saw the Milk and Honey collection designed by Elea Lutz for Riley Blake Designs!

The collection includes a marvelous panel that features the cutest little animals and flowers that could be used for so many craft projects. As a dressmaker, I knew a panel would be perfect on the bodice of one of the dress patterns I designed for Little Lizard King in 2018 - The Bellevue Dress.

I chose the mint colourway to work with, and used a small portion of the panel for the bodice, and the main floral for the skirt and flutters.

This was one of Ellies favourite dresses to date, and shes kept some of the offcuts for me to make her some little dolls cushions, so cute!
Happy Sewing!
