Lisette 2059- Blue flowersPosted: June 15, 2012
I have actually worn this dress A LOT, I just haven’t sat down and had a chance to post it until now. This is another Lisette dress (junkie I tell ya) and it is probably the most comfortable dress I own. I made this in March when it was still chilly and wore it with boots and a cardigan, and now it is transitioning nicely into the 90+ degree weather.
There’s really not a whole lot to this one, it is literally two panels sewn together with a little bit of gathering at the neck line and binding around the arm holes and the neck, and then a self belt to tie it up. Done! I used a super duper soft knit, it is so light and breezy. I don’t think knits were actually a recommended fabric, but as you know I am a fabric recommendation rebel, it turned out great in this instance.
This dress is simple, QUICK and can be made up in all sorts of fabric. I’ll most likely revisit this one. Everytime I wear people are like oh my goodness! You MADE that! you are so talented. And I’m like oh stop… no go on!
If they only knew! hee hee!
