4 Days 4 Laurel Dresses

I can’t for the life of me remember the last time I sewed so many things for myself in such a short period of time. I just couldn’t help myself I sewed one then I had to do another and another….this pattern is dangerously like narcotics!

Since I rarely sew this much we are going to stretch these dresses into at least a couple of different posts but I thought I’d give a little snapshot of the ones I made this weekend.

I decided to keep my Laurels simple. I don’t think adding a bunch of crazy do-dads and embellishments is quite my style. I added small details to each of my dresses but am also excited to make a completely and simple version.

See all of the most gorgeous dresses from all the sewers on the Flickr group.

P.S. This is the Laurel dress pattern from Colette Patterns.

    wow! Four Laurels in four days. That’s a lot of sewing for sure. I like all of your versions and the fact that you kept them simple but added a few “doodads” to spice it up.

    Wow! I can’t believe you made these four gorgeous dresses in four days! And that shape really suits you.

    Cute dresses. In the last picture it looks like you got a great fit in the armhole. I always have trouble there with the main pattern brands. Did you adjust it or was it just a good pattern?
    Thanks,
    Lindsay

    I had to adjust the armsyce on each of the ones I made by the third I finally got it right so the last two fit a bit better than the others. I also adjusted the bust dart after the first go round as well – had to lower it about an inch.

    I came over here via the Colette blog. I LOVE that constellation pattern! What designer is that? The sleeves are perfect for that version.

  12. I love the Laurel with the constellation fabric – it’s so beautiful I want to make one. where did you get the fabric from? Thank you.

    I love the idea 4 days, 4 laurels! Yours are each so unique, its a very reusable pattern.

    I am in love with the fabric you used in the ‘stargazing’ “Laurel” – is it available anywhere? Just came across your blog via the Coletterie blog of Colette Patterns, and live it – good work :-)

    Oops, meant to say *love*, not ‘live’ – sorry!
