The final piece in our Modern Chloris mini wardrobe collection is the Oliver+S Fairy Tale Dress. This dress is truly a labor of love. It is not a fast sew, but all the details and little thoughtful elements make it a special occasion dress.
We made the Fairy Tale Dress for the third and final look, Evening Theater. We paired this special dress with the Ruffle Jacket and a floral crown. Nothing more needed!
The Fairy Tale Dress is fully lined. This makes it very couture.
My first plan was to use pink pleather (like on the Mini Senna Tote) for the belt and collar, but it didn’t lay right, so I ended up using the same fabric as the lining.
The sweet little tulip sleeves are also lined. The instructions made putting the sleeves together very easy and they came out so lovely. It’s one of those little details that make this dress so special.
The Fairy Tale Dress zips up the back. It’s one of the prettiest invisible zippers I’ve ever installed.
The tulle layer under the skirt helps to puff out the skirt, keeping its shape. Another thoughtful feature of this pattern is the deep hem which you can let out as your daughter grows. Pretty nice since you put so much hard work into it!
The fabric for this dress comes from the Skopelos line by Katarina Rocella for Art Gallery Fabrics. It is called
Art Gallery Skopelos Nisi Flora Oceanon Fabric (affiliate link) The combination of flowers, lace and colors make this fabric just as special as the dress on which we used it!
Here’s a final collage showing how the Fairy Tale Dress coordinates with the other pieces of the mini wardrobe collection. You can see the whole collection here, which also includes links to the details of each piece.
We’d like to thank Art Gallery Fabrics for supplying the fabric for this mini wardrobe collection. Also, Lil Luxe Collection for inspiring the mini wardrobe and providing the Lil Luxe Collection patterns. It was truly an epic undertaking, and we loved every minute of it!
