Lykka dress for girls

I first saw the lykka dress from Mamili 1910 when she made the lykka dress for herself. I knew our girls would love the option with multiple skirts so I bought the lykka dress for girls and for women. That was 2 years ago. In the beginning of this year, I traced the pattern for our eldest, but did not sew it before spring started and then it was too warm for the dress. This year I wanted to sew it up and I did, eventually a month ago.

I had to retrace some of the pattern pieces as our girl of course grew, mostly in length. I even already picked out the fabrics last year, so that was easy, I just picked it up and sewed it together. It is not a dress you sew up quickly, both the collar and the skirts was something I had to do slowly to see what was happening. In the end both our girl and me love the result. She asked for another one, maybe with a different skirt combination. You can switch around with which skirt you put on top and how many skirts you attach.

I even have plans (and have picked out the fabric already) for a Lykka dress for myself. I love the asymmetrical collar and the possibility of using different fabrics or just use one fabric and accentuate the seams to make a totally different dress. I hope to sew mine during the Christmas holidays. Let’s hope it is finished before 2021.
