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.
