One of my pattern testers recently posted on IG that she has made FOUR (!!!) Lou Box Dress 1’s and that each of them feels completely different. First off, I love hearing when someone has made one of my patterns more than once. It fills me up with warm, gooey feelings. In a good way. :)
Second, this insight proves that simple silhouettes can be immensely versatile. Using different fabrics to make the Lou Box Dress or Lou Box Top results in very different garments, without that repeat feeling. Because these patterns can be made in woven or in knit fabric the possibilities are even greater than with most patterns. With the Lou Box Dress 1, I can use a sweatshirt fabric for a cozy, lounge dress or choose a yummy woven fabric like the sand-washed crinkle rayon that I used for this chic and sophisticated version.
