Mini Button Up

I really like pattern testing. Lately I have been doing quite a bit, and the latest pattern I tested was by a designer that is seriously admire. Lil Luxe Collection! Jessica's designs are so fashion forward and her patterns are a sewers dream. It was such an honor to become part of her testing team for her new collection.
One of her latest releases is the Mini Button Up Blouse. And tomorrow is the last day you can grab it for 30% off. I LOVE this shirt so much. Its classic, stylish, the fit is spot on, and like I said, her instructions are flawless.
I actually got this fabric from the local fabric shop, in my tiny town of 500 people. It was sort of exciting to find something there and know exactly what pattern it would pair perfectly with. And bonus points for me for having the exact color of pom-pom trim on hand. Love happy coincidences like that.

The only modification I made was lengthening it about 1.5" inches. Avery is tall for her age, so it definitely wasn't a pattern issue, just a super tall and skinny thing. One of the reasons I love sewing her wardrobe; custom fit baby!
Have I mentioned that I love this pattern? It has so many professional touches and details. I have always felt a little intimidated by collar stands, but Jessica takes the fear out of it and makes it so simple. It doesn't get better than this pattern my friends.
