This is my favorite version yet of the new Lyon pattern by Kelly of Sewing in No Man's Land. It's part of the July subscription to The Sew What Club. And if you don't know all about that you'll have to check out this post with my other Lyon dresses. Or go straight to the website and signup!
This version of the Lyon has a dressier look thanks to the fantastic scuba knit print paired with a textured stretch satin. I purchased the grey satin from Jo-Ann in their special occasion fabrics section. I can't remember where I found this fabulous scuba fabric (Girl Charlee? Harts? Michael Levine? all great sources for knits) but I bought enough to make something for myself because I love it so much.
We had a great time taking the photos too. Audrey loved it when I told her she could do whatever she wanted. And why haven't I used this big grey wall as a backdrop before? It's so perfect!
I could keep sewing this dress, and I'm sure I will again, but I'm going to mix it up a bit now. Something else for myself, something else for the girls. Stay tuned and see.
