Lisette Charlotte

((Update - go HERE to see this dress in action!))


Hello friends!

Today I made a super random, "I just need to make something right-this-second!" dress.





It's my go-to dress pattern - the Charlotte Dress form Mama Stellato.  This time, I actually made it as a dress, with the sash and everything!  Holler!  (See my shirt versions, here, here, and here!)  I know I pimp this pattern like it's my job, but I truly adore it!  It's instant gratification.

Gotta apologize for these photos.  Take one good camera with a dead battery and missing charger, and an old camera of ill-repute, and this is what you get.  Hopefully the cute shines through anyway??
I'll take pics of Em in the dress as sooooon as I can!



This fabric you may recognize is from the Lisette line that is super cute and popular, for sale at Jo-Ann.  I love it to bits!  The color is definitely not translating in these pics, but it's delightful.  Good for a Fall dress, no?  And the ribbon is just an inch wide grosgrain.  I literally just went to look at the dress to remind myself what color the ribbon was so I could explain it.  Ha!  These pictures!  The ribbon is called 'Wildberry', and the picture below is sort of the most accurate. :D   




So there you have it!  Naptime sewing, and a new Fall dress for LouLouBee!  Win!

Are yall off work tomorrow?  Have a fabulous day off if you are!


Cheers!

  3. LOVE! Does the pattern go up to size 5? Is this one of your vintage patterns? I need one for Katie!

    Are you off today? Everything in TN (but banks and mail) is open today. That has always seemed weird to me. Have a great day!

  6. love this dress! The color is fab. I always love spur of the moment sewing! However, I think my spur of the moment sews are successful about 50% of the time.
