Ooooh,I am enjoying myself,sewing for me!(my twins are getting just a little worried)!
I finished up another Lisette pattern today,my second,this time a Portfolio dress.
I used some more of my denim(43 metres to go) and made a wearable toile/muslin.
After a lot of thought and reading the forums,I went with the 12(I wear an AUS 10/12). It was a super fit from the hips down but I did take 3/4'' extra off the seam allowance form mid sleeve tapering back to the hips.
Now,I am sure if you are tall and willowy,the fullness would be lovely.
As I am short and cuddly,some shape was required or it looked a little maternity(wash my mouth out)!
It is lovely to wear,it skims the body beautifully and one just feels so smart!
Anyone for Cibo's?
Constructing the dress,I reversed the instructions for the cuffs and neckline. I sewed the inside first and turned and topstitched from the outside.
Apart from that,I followed the instructions to the letter and they are good instructions!
Definitely more oliver+S then standard Simplicity.
This is my first Lisette pattern,but there will be many more!
