Litore high-low dress

Oh Sofilantjes, your dresses are great! Sofilantjes dresses are always a big hit with our girls. I have sewed almost all jersey dresses by Sofilantjes*: Nivalis dressSemper sweater with mini dress add onSolis dress (and another Solis dress), Mantica dressMontis dressRegina tunic and Regina dressVivax dress and lastly the Foras dress. There is just one jersey dress missing: the Litore dress!
So time to sew a Litore dress I thought. And here it is! Another favourite, the pineapple dress (there are pineapples on the skirt). Here all dress have their own name, usually based on the color or fabric of the dress. Is that the same with your kids?
The Litore dress has many skirt options. It has three different skirts, a handkerchief, A-line and high-low circle dress. Additionally, you can make these different skirts in three different lengths, tunic, dress or maxi length. You can even combine these skirts with the Solis dress by Sofilantjes, isn't that neat? It comes in sizes 12M all the way up to 14 years. The strap detail on the back is what makes this dress so unique.
As you might know, our eldest girl loves long dresses (I mean over the moon about long dresses). Some dresses she just doesn't like anymore because they are not long enough according to her (sigh). Therefore I thought let's try a high-low circle dress length for the skirt, maybe she finds it long enough to her liking. 
When sewing a high-low dress the inside of the fabric of the skirt is visible. I didn't think of that. So for this dress you can see the ugly white of the inside of the pineapple fabric. Next time I should use fabric with a coloured inside for high-low dresses. At least our girl loves the high-low effect, she finds it long enough.
Fabric: the pineapple fabric is one I got from the exchange pile during our sewing weekend, it is a very flowy type of fabric. The uni coloured pieces of fabric came from my stash, the pink fabric was a coupon from Caresstoffen.
