It`s been a while. Not sure, if I missed anything. I sewed as always, just sharing didn`t feel that important. I`ll see if I feel like visiting this little space more often again.

But today I`m here and would love to show you my version of the Luxdress. It`s not an option to sew just for one of my girls anymore. I had to start sewing similar dresses for both.

“Mum, there are no buttons on my dress. Yes, but you got a bow on the neckline. Oh yes, her dress hasn`t a bow, right? Then it`s fine.”

My baby girl will have the same dresses in all the sizes.


The Lux is a basic dress with a shirring or elastic detail at the waist. The option for a sporty jumpsuit is also included. It`s easy to make it yours, by adding details. It comes with capsleeves and a long sleeve is available. Stripes look like summer to me, that`s why my dresses had to be sleevless. For adding some interest I made a button-placket and a bow at the neckline. Pockets make them happy.


The instructions are clear and I even discovered something new to me. Gathering elastic makes shirring so easy. I think there isn`t a better way to shirr knit fabric. Easy to sew on, it gives a nice finish and you`ll get exactly the measurement of your desire.


Sizing is accurate, I took the size based on their chest measurements and adjusted the length. It`s a nice, comfortable fit. They`ll get lots of wear out of those dresses. They`re going to fit next summer as well.

One thought on “Lux

  1. I’ve missed seeing your sewing. These dresses are lovely, simple everyday dresses. I really like them both. My girls both love wearing the same outfits but I can’t help making them the same but different 😉
