My Lilly Pulitzer Inspired Dress: Simplicity 1609
Hey, sewing people!! I've not added anything to this blog in how long?!! Well, I've been sewing a little less then usual because I have been a bit busy. Life happens. But that's not to say I'm not constantly thinking about sewing or having a project on my sewing table at all times still. I have been on Instagram pretty regularly though posting random projects, follow me if you want.
This here shift dress was sewn up for my latest Fabric Mart blog post. I spotted this Lilly Pulitzer cotton pique on their website... but honestly I had no idea it was from that designer until I did a little internetting for inspiration and found it on some fashion bloggers' sites. I was not a Lilly Pulitzer fan before exactly, I guess her clothing line has flown under my radar. But this fabric is soo fun and summery and has lighthouses!! I used Simplicity 1609, a reprint of a 1960s vintage pattern. You can go on over to Fabric Mart's blog if you wanna read my full post of my lighthouse dress.
