Lisette fabric

So a while ago, I posted about this lovely Lisette fabric I bought and planned on making into a shirt.

Pretty fabric from Jo-Ann's that is bound to be a cute easy top.

It feels lovely, and I had guessed it was a cotton lawn, and it turns out I was correct.
Leisl, from Oliver + S, designed a whole line of these lovely prints for Jo-Ann’s fabrics!

You should seriously take a look at the Oliver + S website, they just have adorable, sort of retro graphics that I love, even though I don’t sew for kids.

She’s even got a new line of patterns from Simplicity that are very cute. My gripe is that of course they only run to a 22. I don’t think I love any of the patterns enough to take all the time to grade them up at this point in time, but who knows what they’ll come out with as the collection grows.

(For all you non-sewists, pattern sizes aren’t like regular ready to wear sizes like you find at Macy’s. They have a whole system of their own, and in my experience, I wear a much larger size in sewing patterns, than I do in ready to wear. And regular non-plus size patterns only go up to 22 which is too small!)

Here’s the progress on the Lisette top so far. I think it needs sleeves & a hem. Please ignore that. And the wrinkles…and my crazy expression.lol
