Lisette Pattern #2245

Purchased at JoAnn's this past spring...for $1.
Those sales are the only time I ever buy patterns, unless I have a handy-dandy 40% off (or higher!) coupon.


I made view C. Originally, I saw the dress over at Barefoot in the Kitchen when she did a post on it. But a shirt was more nursing friendly, so I went with it. I love the fact that the neckline is high, but not turtleneck high, and it's nice and cool for summer.

I have to agree with her though, it seemed a little blousy. I tried taking the back in various ways (gathers, elastic shirring, etc...) till I finally settled on adding a tie. Next time I might just take the back seam in a little.

Also, like Stephanie said, next time I will make a size smaller. That might help with the "fullness" of things.
You see, I only like to wear tops that look like maternity tops...when I'm actually pregnant.
