Then I realised , I want to make another lilou.
I have to make another lilou.
I can't make another lilou, surely that makes me the most boring sewing blogger ever!
And then I realised lilou is perfect! And here's 10 reasons why!
1: it's lined , so as long as I French seam the skirt it looks as lovely as most of the rtw items in my wardrobe.
2: I can whip one up pretty quickly now, with minimal stress.
3: it doesn't matter which type of skirt I make it always looks cute!
4: it's summer and it's a perfect length for bare (gasp) legs!
5: it's cold but it still looks cute with thick tights and a cosy cardigan!
6: I've perfected the bodice and now the fit is excellent! YAY!
7: I love the neckline! It's not nun height but it doesn't scream here are my boobs either!
8: depending on which fabric I use it can be a day frock or a party frock!
9: its perfect for the nursery run!
10: it's just a fantastic summer dress! And a beautiful pattern! STOP JUDGING ME!
So it's going to be dreadfully boring and make yet another one! I can't help it! I don't care if I end up with a wardrobe full of lilou a at least I'll be happy!
P.s in other news, I found my original zipper foot today! Result!
