how i wear it: lisette B6169 drapey dress

Hello, friends! Today we’re just wrapping up the sew-along for this dress, so I thought I’d show it off. I wore this dress to a fancy event last week, but we didn’t photograph it that night. In any case, I received lots of compliments, and it was loads of fun to dye the fabric before sewing the dress.

Next week we’ll be back with lots of fun things, including a sew-along schedule for the new Oliver + S patterns.

Have a great weekend!

    Sooo chic! I absolutely love the hand dyed fabric used with your dress pattern. The party shoes are awesome. Liesl you look like a run way model!

    GORGEOUS dress . . . And to know the silk fabric was hand- dyed by you before you sewed this classic pattern, B6169 Drapery Dress! BRAVO, Liesl! Looks right out of VOGUE! Sarah in Minneapolis

    Wow I love it! The dyed fabric is gorgeous and I love the understated styling/accessories. I completely missed the sew along – still prepping & cutting my fabric – but am excited to start working on it! And now I reallu want to try my hand at hand-dyeing some fabric ;).

    You are stunning! And I’m beyond impressed that you can do a whole evening in heels that high! How fun for you to be able to wear something that you not only sewed, but that you also designed! (oh, and hand-dyed the fabric!)

  6. Fabulous ‘do, an up style suits your face beautifully.
    Stunning shoes too, the complete outfit is lovely, well done.

  7. Agreed, you look fabulous, and I loved reading the details of how you prepared the fabric.

    SWOON! I love this whole look. How hard is silk to dye? I would love to give this a try. (I cannot wait to sew this pattern up too!!)
