Lizzy told me I needed to make this pattern a little while ago and she was spot on. I fell in love with this dress pattern when I saw how the side seams overlap in such a clever way and all that lovely skirt pleating. This dress was my first version. But almost immediately I cut out two more versions with Liberty making the skirt a litle bit longer, for a more formal look. I also made a skirt version out of Liberty Belmont Ivy, which you saw just a few days ago.
Liberty Stanley is a favourite print of mine. I love this colourway so much that I also bought this exact print in Dufour Jersey that I’m stashing for just the right project. The upper bodice is lined and I used solid voile for that.
My second version of this dress is in Liberty Alexandra. Can’t wait to show you!
