    Looks like Lisette has a new line of patterns through Buttrick. I will get the dress pattern.

    Well that was a well kept surprise! I’m intrigued by the dress too. I like the pants actually. It’s refreshing to see something not skinny. In linen they would make a nice travel wardrobe. I also kind of like that jacket. It’s so retro! I’m finally starting to see the charm in this 80s revival. And,it looks like the one worn by the 2014 girl of the year Isabelle. 🙂

    I just took a closer look at the jacket. I love it! Super cool.

    I love the dress with the cross-over bodice! I’m going to get that. And the princess-seamed top with the trousers is very nice. Love that it comes with different cup sizes. I checked it out on the Butterick site to see the back view, and it’s great.

    I love the dress too. I see lots of flattering things for someone of my shape and size. EG: a v neck, even with the tab is flattering for shorter people who don’t have lots of room between neck/chin and chest. The pleats at the chest should hopefully accommodate the double D girls. And yet it is “dressy” enough for work. The waist at the natural waist emphasizes the narrowest part of this curvy girl’s body.

    Me likes it.

    I just have to get moving on setting up my sewing room so I can SEW!!

    I have a jacket just like that one that I bought in my early 20’s. It doesn’t fit anymore but I refuse to let go of it. As I remember it wasn’t cheap! Maybe now I could make a new one.

    I love all of them and the dress is fantastic! I wonder how that will go for nursing? I am suspecting it would be easy to adapt.

    They won’t be ready for Easter will they?

    I’m so glad you like them! You’ll have plenty of time to sew for Easter, @justsewit. They are on their way from the printer as I type! We should have time in stock shortly.

    Butterick website has a pattern sale on right now! It seems like you can buy the new Lisette ones. I’m currently wondering if the fancy dress might be the perfect thing for some Marsala colored linen in my stash. I mean, if I have the color of the year, I ought to have a dress out of it!

    OOH that’s perfect. I was thinking a lovely midweight linen myself.

    Need to get that sewing room set up so I can sew. I mentioned feeling blah on FB and a friend said, asked if I my sewing room was set up and I realized how much I miss it as I am in a limbo.

    That could be the blah!

    I’m thinking of trying this http://www.sewlisette.com/patterns/B6183 lisette top in a Ponte de Roma double knit. Question 1: good or bad idea? Do I need a woven? Question 2: If I use knit do I also use knit for the neck facing?

    My answer disappeared!

    I think a stable knit would be lovely. I would use the fabric for facings but interface with a soft product like sheerweft.

    There is a Lisette forum where you may get more traffic, MC.
