The good part was a Saturday devoted to sewing. I finished my Lisette Portfolio dress in denim... and I love it!
It is the ultimate in comfort-dressing. I can wear it over tights or jeans or leggings, or even go bare-legged in the unlikely event that I find myself on a warm beach!
And the best thing? The pockets! Look at my pockets!
I lined them in Michael Miller fabric which is printed like an old school jotter, covered in red graffiti of hearts and flowers and: "Peace always" Yeah, man. Cool.
Lisette Portfolio dress, Simplicity 2245
1.7 metres of soft stretchy denim from my local fabric shop, Butterfly Fabrics in Inverurie
2 red buttons at the back of the neck
Fat quarter of Michael Miller fabric, found on eeebaaay, for pocket linings and the back loops.
That's it: I have a uniform dress!
