Another Sewjourn make...
This is a Little Lisette Simplicity pattern 1893 that I found on Ebay one day.
It's a darling pattern and was really easy to make, and I love that it's something that I believe the girls will be able to wear for a number of years given the style of it.
|She was very pleased to find her shoes matched...|
|The bodice is a little roomy but it should be good for two summers|
This divine fabric is from Anna Maria Horner's 'Field Study' range - it's called Raindrops Poppies, in the platinum colourway.
I love this. I bought it for me then decided to share...
I got mine from the lovely ladies at Millrose Cottage.
|This pattern would be great for girls up to about 11 or 12 years old in the right fabric|
The bodice is fully lined as you create the outer and lining bodices then put them wrong sides together (yes I had to read that a few times to make sure I was right!!), then bind all the outer edges and add the straps in bias binding.
|The zip you have when you're not having a zip - hides away nicely.|
Lapped zipper at the back had me a little tricked but Lara set me straight - I really need to do more things with zips so they become second nature!
Seeing this pic I am reminded I do need to add a hook and eye to the top of the zipper.
This is a gorgeous pattern and again, I love how great fabric doesn't need 'dressing up'.
I made this in a size 10 but she definitely could have gone down a size - that's the ONLY downside of sewing away from home - if only I remembered to get all their measurements before I left!
Yes - there are more dresses to come!
