Nelia Top and Dress pattern review

Another post about the Nelia in less than a day you say? Absolutely! This pattern deserves it. Like all the patterns from Popolok Designs, it is awesome! And this time I have pictures to share :) I've been waiting anxiously to be able to post them. So glad the day is finally here!


Isn't it lovely!
These are very well made patterns. I can't say enough about them. Alviana has great attention to detail and it shows through in her work. Each pattern has a full tutorial with pictures in the PDF. She makes even more advanced techniques seem simple. I feel a even beginner sewist could follow along and create great beautiful garments with Popolok Designs


Options, oh so many options! The Nelia Top and Dress can be made sleeveless, with puff sleeves, long sleeves, tie-bow collar, peter pan collar, no collar, peplum top length, mid dress length, or maxi dress length. Whew, that was a mouthful! I made mine a sleeveless peplum top with a tie-bow collar. And since it was about 85 degrees here in southern Oregon today, it is perfect. It will be loved all summer I'm guessing. I can even see it layered over a long sleeve shirt this fall. Sweet!


The girl loves flowers!
I just love the fit of this top. Keilana can move freely, yet it's not so big that she swims in it. There is a fine line between a good ease and too big. Know what I mean? This top is exactly where it should be.

Don't forget, there is a coupon code for 20% off everything in by Popolok Designs. Use the code "Nelia". But it is only good for 24 hours after the pattern release. She has a pick any 3 pattern bundle for only $11.99. Then you get 20% percent off that! What a deal.

These opinions are completely my own. I do not get anything in compensation for sharing this. I just really love these patterns ;)
