I picked up the Racer Tunic Pattern from Lil Blue Boo a few weeks ago and have been itching to sew it up!
I also own the LBB Sienna Dress Pattern, but never made a dress from it. (Only pajama tops). Once I saw that the pre-made dresses she sold had a flounce/circle skirt bottom, I wanted to make my dresses like those. They were so much cuter than the straight ruffle bottom that came with the pattern. I had always planned on figuring out the measurements to add the flounce/circle skirt bottom, but never quite got to it.
When I saw her new racer tunic pattern already had the flounce/circle skirt bottom, I bought it immediately!
(Sometimes having someone else figure out the measurements is worth the money, especially since I know I will be sewing this pattern quite often.)
I haven’t yet compared the Sienna pattern to this one, but I’m sure I’ll be able to use one of the pattern sizes to get the flounced skirt I always wanted on the Sienna pattern.
I just love the reverse seam detail on the skirt. It is exactly what I had in mind when I bought this hot pink serger thread so long ago… I do think when I sew up the next dress, I will subtract an inch or two from the upper dropped-waist part and add it to the bottom of the flounced skirt.
