I was so excited when Liesl Gibson released the Lisette patterns.
I went a little nuts and sewed up a mini wardrobe of Portfolio dress's,tunics,tops and trousers.
And then life got in the way.
I was recently sent some very pretty voile from two sweet friends and with the two pieces I was able to make myself a new Portfolio dress.
In the past I sewed the size 12. This was great for the tunic but I found in the dress I was splitting the back seam pulling it up to feed Matilda.
I made this up in a size 14 and it is perfect. Plenty of ease through the body and the voile falls so nicely that it is not tenty at all.
As I am waiting on some felt to finish up Lidia's shark costume I decided to make up another Portfolio top.
This time I made a size 10 to wear as a fitted top.
I used a lovely grey stretch poplin and added a wee tab&button and quick embroidery.
I used a coral coloured thread as I find it works nicely with pink or orange and the beautiful MOP button was a gift from a dear friend.
I really really like the fit of the size 14 Portfolio in voile and think I will make a few more for summer.
