Second Lilou dress

Thought I’d post a squiffy photo of my second Lilou dress from Love at first stitch. I wanted to remember to take a photo before I went out and drank lots of fizzy! When I wear the dress again I’ll try and get another shot.

The fab fabric which is covered in swirling airplanes was a present for my birthday. Luckily there’s some left over that I can use to make something for my son. I get nagged every time he see’s it. 
Dress is based on the Lilou pattern with a circular skirt attached in place of the skirt on the pattern. It took a few attempts to attach the skirt to the bodice but that was mainly because I wanted to shorten the bodice so the waist was a bit higher. 
I love it and can’t wait to wear it again. Maybe out to lunch tomorrow!

My first Lilou dress

Thought I’d post my new Lilou dress as I have managed to have a picture taken of me in it! 

The pattern is from Tilly’s book Love at first stitch. It’s a fab book that to start with I wasn’t sure if I would make all of the patterns. However I’m indeed having a good bash at most of them. I’ve made the pj trousers, a Mimi blouse that I love, the delphine skirt and now a Lilou dress. I think actually that is nearly all of them. 
I was given a brilliant airplane print fabric for my birthday that I’m in the process of using to make another Lilou bit with a circular skirt. Hope it turns out ok. Just the back seam and hem to go.
