The Eleena Dress is a 60's-inspired A-line dress with a fun pleat detail down the front. There's an option to have separate fabric in the pleat which is what I chose.
The only change I made to the pattern was to shorten it to a top instead of a dress. I made a size 5 and shortened about 7" and I'm in love with how it turned out.
I made her a pair of Abby's Trailblazing Socks (*affiliate link) from the Wolf and Tree, using a gold striped JoAnn knit. I love how quickly they sew up which makes it easy to accessorize.
The main fabrics I used for the Eleena are a Shetland Flannel in a peachy/pink/red color from Imagine Gnats and the contrast is a red interweave chambray that I had in my stash. The pleat fabric is a lovely double gauze which I also purchased from Imagine Gnats last year. I'm so pleased with how they all came together.
When I decided the peachy pinks would be the colors I'd use for this top, I found this Shetland Flannel in jet herringbone (*affiliate link) to use for a pair of Paneled Sunsuit shorts to go with it. Bean is in desperate need of bottoms and since spring weather is around the corner I thought shorts would be the best option. I love that I can whip up a pair of these shorts pretty quickly and they are super comfy for Bean. Plus I wanted a reason to pair those cute knee socks, hehe.
