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.

  4. Crazy! So many times the 'designer' fabric turns out not to be anyone you've heard of (that sounds vaguely insulting, I'm going to be self-offended in a minute). And yes, it needs to be that very dress. And it needs to go to the beach and spill some (your favorite flavor) on it now.
    It's good that life happens.
