a dress

Last time I was at Joann Fabric, they had all their simplicity fabrics on sale.  Last summer I sewed a couple of patterns, so I figured I would try again.  I found this super cute Lisette pattern and figured I would go for it.

 I found a sew along to follow from last year which was very helpful.  They posted pictures of each step and explained some of the steps in more detail.  The most confusing part of the pattern was the pockets.  I definitely had to step away from sewing for a little bit.
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  I wish it was longer, so I'm pondering adding more fabric to the end.  I'm out of the brown fabric so I might try to match up the red fabric.


  I felt so stupid being a model.  Luckily Mike didn't make fun of me.  I had no idea how to stand.


  1. Good job! And you're a natural :)

  2. I love it! You picked great fabric and it is something you can actually wear! The last thing I tried to sew for myself was a maternity shirt that Taylor said looked like a circus tent! I might have to try that one!

  3. Awesome job! Love the fabric! And you did a great job as a model!
