Happy St. Patrick's Day, lovelies! Seems the perfect time to finally post pictures of my mint Simplicity Lisette 2209 dress, don't you think? Idle Fancy needs a little Irish today, even if my ancestors are all Swedish farmers and - embarrassing on this particular day - English aristocrats.
I've been wearing the heck out of this dress since the beginning of March. The pique, from Hancock's once more, is of wonderful quality and is a joy to wear. So much so that I may have given in and invested in 3 yards of some baby pink pique from the same line. You know, just maybe. It would be nice to say that I plan to make something new with it, but - let's be honest - I need another 2209 in my life.
I love, love, love this pattern. You probably already noticed that from previous version though, so onto the pictures!
