Another, another Witchery 'compliment'
You know the story.
Total knock off of this shirt
available here
Perusing the Lekala site we found this.
It had the concealed front and a nice collar stand.
I just left off the collar and added 9 inches to the hem, following the shape.
The shirting was from eBay. A gorgeous, silky cotton with crisp hand.
The embroidered flower was also an eBay purchase. I cut it to size, pressed it in place with a Goddess sheet (it has glue on the reverse) and then topstitched it for extra security.
  The concealed placket was surprisingly easy even with Lekala's instructions.
The buttons, MoP from my dear friend Katy
 The neck ruffle was an easy swap out.
I do like the elegant neck pleats.
I love back shoulder darts, they give such a nice fit.
It was meant to be a tunic but came out more like a dress.
The 'fit and flare' is so nice on her.
So smart on her
~Lidia's Verdict~
I love this dress very much because the Lekala pattern fits me perfectly. 
 I think that where mummy put the embroidered blossoms was perfectly placed. I love the cuffs with the little peak of  skin showing and I can not wait to wear it next.

Another happy sew!

I’ve been fortunate to appear on some excellent podcasts this fall and just realized over the weekend that I never shared them with you all! Back in October I talked to Elise of Elise Gets Crafty and the Get to Work Book about launching my small craft based business. It’s pretty funny to think back […]
