Julie Dress Release

It's finally fall here in Michigan!  We have had some very warm weather and the temperatures have decided to act a little more like "fall".  With that, I was too excited to test out the new Julie dress by Laela Jeyne Patterns.  I'm always looking for dresses and tops for girls that have sleeves.  In the north we need to stay warm and my daughter doesn't always want to wear a sweater over things.
The girls Julie dress has three different sleeve length options which are short, 3/4 length, and long.  I chose the short just because of our current weather but 3/4 length would have been lovely.
The back of the dress has two different options as well.  It can be made with the round neckline like I did or a lower scoop neckline.  My daughter went with the round and I'm glad because that means it will be just a little bit warmer too.

I couldn't resist dressing up my solid navy cotton with some lace.  I love how it changed the look of the dress and my daughter will hopefully wear this again since it looks a little more her style.
Another thing that I added to the dress was a little belt (not in the pattern) with a button, rhinestones, and pearls glued on.  I think it gave it the little extra pop that it needed and boy does it ever sparkle!  This was my first attempt with gluing on rhinestones and pearls.  I'm testing the waters for future makes to see how durable it is.  I love the look, what do you think?
Laela Jeyne Patterns has released several other patterns for the Fall 2017 Collection-Family Photos.  Check out the other blogs on this tour to see all of the patterns and varieties by following the links below.  If you love the Julie dress as much as I do then you can purchase it here, or the full collection here.  The prices are great while on sale too!!!

Let me know what you think of all this greatness!  Are you planning on family photos this fall?
