Lisette Round Trip Dress #2

Hot on the heels of my Eiffel Tower version of the Round Trip Dress comes this little cutie.

I cut this out two weeks ago and only finished it last night, partly because I haven't had a lot of sewing time and partly because I wanted to take it slowly and make no mistakes.

I knew I didn't need to make any adjustments other than taper the waist up to a size 10. This time I made View B with the cute little Peter Pan collar and no sleeves. I used Sew Colette's tutorial for finishing the armholes with bias binding.

The skirt on this one is a bit shorter than the last one due to fabric restrictions. I think this version is really cute and playful. The fit is not perfect but I'm not too fussed about it.

No more selfish sewing for a while now...Christmas is fast approaching and I have a few gifts to make!
