Lisette & The Sewing of Clothes

May 12, 2011 at 8:58 pm 1 comment

Sometimes, I need a break from quilting and the urge to sew a dress for one of the girls takes over.  Even more occasionally, I will sew something for myself.  When I found out that Oliver + S pattern designer Liesl Gibson had designed patterns for women, I picked up those patterns immediately. These patterns are called Lisette and are available through Simplicity.

I had this incredible vintage fabric just waiting for blouse-making. I selected the Portfolio blouse and set to work.  As is her style, Liesl has made garment sewing clear and accessible.  I happily made this in an afternoon.  I’m not sold on how flattering it is on me, but I still find it fun to wear. I am looking forward to sewing the other patterns from Lisette.  I am forever in search of the perfect blouse/tunic pattern.   Next time we talk about garment sewing, I’ll be discussing The Schoolhouse Tunic from Sew Liberated.
