Pattern Review | Lisette Continental Blouse

3 Feb

I picked up the Lisette Continental Blouse, Skirt and Dress pattern at the Joann’s 99 cent pattern sale a couple weeks ago and as soon as I got my serger back, I got it out to sew my own tunic top like Lelia’s with the lovely Filigree Deco Plants Blush Pink  fabric by Pat Bravo.

And now I want to buy every Lisette pattern ever made.

They are so easy and clear and brilliantly laid out! It was a total dream to sew! And it fits beautifully!

The detail in the back is just perfect, not too much and not too full.

And the bust darts make it fit nicely in the front.

I liked it so much that I lengthened the pattern, and used the back pieces to make a plain back without the gathers to make a pattern for a simple shift dress.

Stay tuned for that one and be prepared to see a gazillion iterations of it too!


And FYI, Leisl Gibson is the designer of the Lisette patterns and she also makes those oh so lovely Oliver + S Patterns that I rave about as well!
