Cam's Lisette Sewalong to give myself a kick to my derriere to get a dress sewn for myself. OK ... so officially it was a Lisette Continental Dress ... but I got the green light to take part with the Lisette Passport Dress. Mainly because I already had this pattern but also because I can't work a belt on a dress ... I just can't seem to tie the thing right. I missed the dress belt tying gene. But oh how I love this dress. It has some cute dart work on the front to give a fitted bodice ... and just enough skirt to give a little hat dip to the fifties.
Last time I sewed this dress I ran it up in size 16 ... and ended up having to run it in at the side seams. This time I had a go at the 14 ... no adjustments required - snug but wearable.
Simplicity Pattern 2209 if you care to get amongst it.
