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!

    I'm thinking of trying this in a lightweight wool for the cooler months. Glad I picked up this pattern when it was first released. Seems to be a hot ticket.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try ebay now. And bravo for all your projects. You've got great talent and style!

    I have also been desperately searching for this pattern. It's rather expensive on ebay (about $70!) and I've heard that Liesl is thinking of reissuing it through her own line since Simplicity isn't carrying it anymore: http://instagram.com/p/jt99g7NwEV/#

    I adore your make and I would love to sew a similar dress for my 20-year olddaughter. I'm desperately looking for this pattern, which seems to have disapperead from our planet! So, if you want to get rid of yours, please let me know!

    Oh man, I didn't realize it was out of print! I'll check the pattern drawers next time I'm at Joanns and see if they have any left over. You may want to try ebay too!

    I *think* its called "June's Meadow", from the spring 2013 seasonal collection - hope that helps!

    Thank you ever so much.  I would love to know what kind of fabric you used for your Japanese Feminine wardrobe Bow-dress also. It looks like a kind of linen-cotton blend? 

  • Maiken Pedersen commented 5 years ago

    Hi, lovely dress and lovely fabric. Could you tell me what is the name of the print? Thanks!

  • Alex commented 5 years ago

    I have this pattern in my stash and seeing your version has inspired me to dig it out. Great pics!
