LLK Style: Special Occasion Edition 2018
Spring and Summer bring special events to our lives every year. We celebrate family events: anniversaries, graduations, special birthdays and milestones we have receched. And we gather even more family and friends to share other precious moments with them, from the First Birthday parties to First Communions and Weddings.
We lovingly plan and photograph these events and in years to come, when looking back at the photos we remember the people, the music, the event location, and we remember THE dress we created for that day!
Let us here at Little Lizard King inspire you to create unique and individual dresses for the young ladies in your life for spring and summer events!
First we have Amsterdam. The Amsterdam dress has a beautiful back bodice closure with ties and the original pattern includes a simple and patchwork skirt options, But using seven layers of tulle for the skirt and special occasion fabrics Alejandra created a gorgeous Amsterdam dress for summer festivities.
The Amsterdam dress pattern would also be a perfect choice for the flower girls at a beach wedding! Karine added a beautiful lace inset to the Amsterdam bodice and a lace trim to the skirt. And for the little sister´s dress she added a decorative trim and topped the outfits with pretty flower crowns!
Bellevue dress pattern has been one of our spring favorites, and Rachael modfied this pretty dress style into a stunning maxi length special occasion dress. She added triple tulle layers for each layer of the double flutters. For a fuller skirt she added extra width to the skirt pieces and used two layers of tulle over matte satin.
Are you ready to be swoon? The Roundabout Dress pattern transfers beautifully from a woven fabric summer dress into a sophisticated special events dress.
Misthaven pattern is packed with different options from simple to tiered bubble skirt, but for a different style Donna made Misthaven with a double layer skirt using special occasion fabrics and flower embellishments for a dress to be treasured!
Roundabout is one of the classic Little LIzard King patterns. Pam added an organza layer to the bodice and embellished it with lace and decorative botton. She used satin ribbon for the ties and added a lace trim to the double layer skirt.
For a classic flower girl dress style Niina used the Misthaven pattern in swiss dot fabric with a flower and heart print, and added delicate little flowers to the neckline. For extra fulness for the skirt she added 4 layers of tulle and lining.
Hanny´s version of the Misthaven Dress in linen includes a beautiful bow and pretty trim in the skirt hem.
Arendelle is a beautiful special occasion dress pattern. Alejandra modified the high low style into a maxi length and added a tail to the back of the skirt. This fit to a princess dress included 3 layers of tulle and 2 layers of chiffon.
Winnie Pinnie has a sweet cutout back with button closure and looks so cute as a sundress! Kate had an idea of Winnie Pinnie in maxi length for summer celebrations and the results are absolutely stunning!
