Ladies and gentlemen, drum roll please, the Lisette dress is finished! I feel the overwhelming need to share with you with pictures of the dress before the details, so here we go.
I highly recommend this pattern. The directions are the best directions that I have ever worked with in my short sewing life. There are "Lisette tips" sprinkled throughout the pattern along with a reminder to finish seams and recommended methods for doing so included throughout the whole list of instructions. If all sewing directions were written this well it would be much easier for beginners like myself to learn to sew.
The bodice has two darts in the front that overlap in the center. It should be noted that it is imperative that you mark the left dart first, stitch, then press before you ever mark and make the right dart. Also, it seems to me that the armholes are a bit deep and there could be some potential for some side bra show.
Tomorrow I should be able to get some better pictures outside while the sun is still out. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
