This dress didn’t actually start as the Lazy Susan by Brownie Goose. I started it as a Sally Dress (by Very Shannon) but messed up the bodice and got frustraited and peeved so kept the skirt as was (they share a width and are both very full) and I cut the bodice from the LS and sewed it up in no time.
Its a fantastic pattern, easy to cut, not to fiddly but looks great and Amy’s instructions are absolutely fantastic. I left off the flutter sleeves as i wanted it plain – and I wasnt in the mood to faff with additional gathering. MUST buy a gathering foot – I loath hand gathering.
It sewed up in about 2h in total. The appliqué on the skirt was only a few mins as I cheated and used iron on interfacing and just sticked the detailing on. The bodice fabric is Kokka from a little 2nd hand place in our town – it was a remnant – not easy to use as it was all cut weirdly but worth it. The skirt is Windsor Lane by Moda.
I reduced the button overlap to make the top as roomy as possible. Winter wearing in mind and allowing for layers under neither. Also Moo gets put off if clothes are tight to put on.
I’m delighted with it and i have to say that I simply love Brownie Goose patterns. They are PDF so you buy and go. They are easy and simple. Classic and chic. The instructions are great. Yeah, i’m a fan.
