In my previous post I mentioned that I tested the Laurelette from Greenstyle Creations. I wanted to show off the other versions I made =)

The  Greenstyle Laurel is one of my favorite Women’s Patterns. I think I own 6 of them. Its just a super flattering and versatile. I’ve made everything from a cowl neck dress to a summer tank style tunic with it. I was over the moon excited when I heard there would be a kids version, The Laurelette.

The Laurelette has a great size range, 12 months to 14 years. Options include 4 sleeves lengths plus an option for sleeveless,  Tunic length, Dress Length, Hi-Lo Tunic or Dress. Cowl Neck, Regular neck binding, Fully pleated skirt, flat back skirt, and pockets!  You can use these options to create a ton of different looks.

The Robot version above is a Cowl Neck Dress with pleats in both the front and back.

For the Fox version I used the Tunic Length and Regular Neck Binding.

I used the flat (non-pleated) back for the tunic.

The Robot, Foxes, and Stars (Sleeves on the Fox Tunic) are all Euroknits and came from L’oiseau Fabrics! I love all the fun prints and how beautiful they sew up each time. They are always huge hits around here =)

This is my Daphne from Scooby Doo inspired Laurelette that I did for the Project Run and Play 80’s Cartoon Week Sewalong. You can read my full post about it here. This one is a cowl neck dress version using the Hi-Low hem. The angle of the Hi-Lo in this one is so perfect!

The pattern instructions for the Laurelette are very thorough and easy to follow. It would be a great pattern for someone that is just starting out with knits. One of my favorite things about the Laurelette and the Laurel is how quick they are to sew up. I can go from printing the pattern to having a completed piece in less than an hour on this one!

Did I mention my daughter LOVES these?

You can get your own copy of the Laurelette or the grown up version, the Laurel at Greenstyle Creations.

On Sept 29th there will be a Sewalong for both the Laurel and Laurelette starting in the Greenstyle Creations Facebook Group, and I am getting to host! How cool is that?
