June Cleaver

One of the prizes from the Spring Top contest was two Lisette patterns of my choice.  I've been itching to make this one ever since!  I had some pretty white eyelet (also a Spring Top prize!), but didn't really want an entire dress out of it. So, I picked up some really pretty swiss dot at JoAnn while it was half off and put my dress together.
Here's how it turned out...
Casey really likes this one; he said I look polished, like June Cleaver, ha! He meant that in a good way :)  You can read my review of this pattern here.

I lined this whole dress using this awesome tutorial on lining a sleeveless bodice without hand sewing and it is pure magic! So, I just had to share :)

I plan on making the jacket on this pattern too. I never would have given it a second glance going by the pattern envelope, but I saw this version on Flickr and could envision it all kinds of ways! I already found the perfect fabric too :) Maybe I'm just barely starting to be ready for Fall, but it can hold off for quite awhile longer, if you ask me!


  1. So beautiful! I love the fabrics that you chose!

  2. This fabric was very nice and this photos very beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
