Lisette 2059- Blue flowers


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!

    Cute! As a fellow fabric suggestion rebel, I think this one turned out great! 🙂 BTW, where did you get the shoes? I’ve been searching for the perfect casual-ish sandal, and that’s pretty close to what I’m picturing in my head (which I can’t seem to find in the store, go figure).

      Thank you! I know, screw recommended fabric! I love these shoes! I found them at DSW and they didn’t have my size in the store so I ordered them online. They were a little pricey but I had a $10 coupon and I had to have them, super comfy for wedges too

      • CGCouture says:

        Thanks for the shoe suggestion! BTW, you won the pattern on my blog, so if you can get back to me with your mailing address, I’ll get that sent out to you! Congrats!

    Where did you get your fabric? I feel like if I had seen a beautiful blue knit at JoAnn’s (and I feel like I know their inventory by heart), I would have snapped it up for myself! Very pretty dress.

    • cjgal says:

      Oh this came from my trusty online site fabric.com. As we all know the rare times that they get a unique print at Joann’s it’s lucky if the bolt lasts a day in there!

  8. Almond Rock says:

  10. Sophia says:

    Wow, this is a beautiful dress. I would have never guessed it was knit, it looks like silk. The print is great!

  11. bernieandi says:

    This dress looks so fabulous on you! I never saw the potential of this pattern. but in this bold print like this it looks awesome. I will have to try it out! 🙂

    I love the fabric you picked – this dress is so flattering and looks beautiful on you. I bought the pattern last week and going to start making it tonight!

    • cjgal says:

      Thanks Amanda! It’s a super easy, fast dress and the cinched belt makes it flattering for everyone. I’m sure yours will turn out great! Send me a link if you post photos
