Lisette & The Sewing of Clothes
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.
