Leila dress pattern hack

So you may have realised that I have taken a liking to the Leila dress sewing pattern from http://www.simplysewingmag.com and if you’ve read any of my other posts, you may realise that I’m also a bit of a fan of this DENIM JERSEY so it was only a matter of time before I put the two of them together.

I made a bit of a change to this version though and instead of having the faux wrap, I put a centre split in. Using the existing pattern piece, I folded over the centre front. I also squared off the pattern and added a little extra seam allowance. (Cool pattern weight hey?)

The rest of the construction was pretty much the same.

Whilst making this I also had to make a mini me version for my little girl. She had hers a little shorter (so she can run fast) and a shorter split.

Don’t look at the weeds!!!!
