Simplicity Lisette 2060

I haven't been blogging, but I have been sewing.  A lot!  I bought the Lisette 2060 pattern to make version B.  When I got pregnant and was starting to get a little belly, I decided version A would be perfect!  I bought orange chevron from and thought that it would be perfect for a Clemson game last fall.

I cut out a size 10, but had to take it in a lot around the waist. Now that I've had the baby, I just took the midsection in a little more and it fits perfectly!

The pattern was fun and easy.  It's only five pieces (because I omitted the cuff pieces) and I love the way the yoke came out. 

I thought then curved hem was a little difficult.  I tried to fold it up twice to encase the raw edge and it didn't lay flat along the curves.  I think next time I will serge the raw edge and fold it up one time.  Or maybe I'll just make it a straight hem. 

I wasn't sure how the chevron was going to look with the gathers in the front, but I think it turned out just fine!

I was in a little bit of a time pinch to finish before the game, so I omitted the buttons on the shoulder and the sleeve cuff.

Lisette patterns are quickly becoming my favorite!  I'm definitely going to make this one again!

Fun day in Clemson!


  1. Such a fun and stylish dress! You look fab!

  2. I love all of your dresses...I am really considering sewing and buying a machine..just moved to Columbia, SC and was you save a lot of money making your own or do you do it for the custom fit?? I really want to learn to sew and don't know if buying patterns will be helpful since I don't know much about sewing..

    would love your thoughts!!
