This adorable Traveler Dress caught our eye in the Lisette Flickr group recently. It was made by Gail, who blogs over at Today’s Agenda. She wrote twice about her dress, and I love how she accessorized it.
Here’s what Gail has to say about it:
I love shirt dresses, but they can be hard to find in ready-to-wear for anything but a rectangular figure. So I was thrilled to find this Lisette pattern, enabling me to make my own, to fit my curvy frame! I have to admit I copied this dress pretty much to the letter from another seamstress in the Lisette Flickr group, Julieree. I’m a big fan of seersucker for spring and summer, and when I saw her dress in the group pool, I had to make one just like it!
The pattern was a dream to work from. I used the size for my chest measurement, and graded out at the hips to the next size up. In actuality, my hips are two sizes larger than my waist according to the body measurements on the pattern envelope, but I didn’t want to make the skirt appear too A-line, and having used Lisette patterns in the past, I knew there is usually a little extra ease. Worked out perfectly! Now I’m enjoying daydreaming about fabric choices for the next one!
