The Elephant Dress

I found this kitschy elephant print knit and of course I had to add it to my wardrobe. The elephants are pretty big, bout 4 or 5 inches tall, so I wanted to just do something simple to show them off. I decided to go with Lisette 2059, which is probably one of the quickest and easiest dresses to make and it cinches with a self belt so it looks good no matter what! It is literally two panels, neck and arm binding ad the belt. Done! and done!

The knit is really heavy so it worked out well for a winter knit dress, kind of an oxymoron right? I wore this out with my girlfriends to dinner and got mucho compliments!

I love the elephants, kind of abstract/bohemian and literal all at the same time… or something like that! Either way super cute

Speaking of Liestte, has anyone seen the newest pattern? How cute is that peplum dress? and the full retro style dress… in love! ¬†Yes I know its part of the big 4 but I like what I like, ya feel me?
