I can't say enough good things about the Lisette Portfolio dress pattern! Its such a great mix of sweet and modern, and the curved seam with pocket looks much harder than it actually is to construct. The instructions are super clear and detailed, which also helps. I'd love to sew up a fancy silk version for evenings out, I think it would be so cute with tights and boots for the fall. But first, I should probably finish all those summer projects I've started!
