I think it’s safe to say that over the last 5 months I have memorized the online pattern stores of Vogue, McCalls, Butterick and Simplicity, so when I saw this very cute dress on LaRoque’s Facebook page, I knew where to go. This Simplicity pattern with its Lily Pulitzer-Tory Burch similarities was all it took for me to pull this Amy Butler fabric out of my stash and get busy.
Here she is, my first Spring dress just waiting for the weather to warm up.
My original plan was to give this pattern a test run with the polka dots making an easy beach tunic, but as soon as I sewed the shoulder and side seams I knew this fabric needed lining to hang properly which resulted a full-fledged dress! I’m quite intimate with this pattern now after spending many more additional hours than I anticipated, but I can’t wait to wear the dress, and I can’t wait to sew this pattern again.
