So excited about this pattern from Lily Bird Studio, the Amanda Dress. I once again was honored to be a tester for this brand new pattern. You may remember the awesome Ben & Mia Pants I tested last winter, my favorite pant pattern ever!
This week I worked on this gorgeous dress. Like a lot of Lily Bird's pattern, the thought she puts into the detail work of her patterns is amazing. This dress has a fully lined bodice front and back, pleated sleeves, a flowing round skirt and tulle pettiskirt for that full 50's style look that I just adore!
The back is finished with 6 buttons and a rap around sash that comes together in the back with a larger button. Very stylish! The matching bias detail around the sleeves and sash are nothing less that what I expect from Lily Bird Studio's.
This is the perfect pattern for my bean pole of a girl. It gives are a beautiful yet youthful silhouette. The pattern I believe is for the advanced sewer due to the construction and detail work. I love this pattern and will definitely be making one for M next!
