Spring Sewing – a sweet SewLisette Easter dress

This is the second project I have made with this lovely linen/lyocel blend from Joann Fabrics. The first was this kimono for my wardrobe sudoku contest.

I bought 2.5 yards of the peachy pink for an Easter Dress. I originally intended to use Butterick 6168, a cute dress with a pleated front. Of course, it’s also a Sew Lisette pattern because I have collected so many and loved every one that I’ve used.

I settled on the fit and flare style of Simplicity 1419 (sadly now out of print) because I thought it would take less effort to fit properly and I knew I would be short on time. As with all her patterns, Liesl was able to take this great classic style and make it something special.

What’s so special about this fit and flare dress is the pleated skirt and the keyhole front.

This is definitely a feminine dress. Perfect for Easter. I wasn’t 100% sure the color would flatter my fair skin, but I think it is a good choice.
