Tessuti’s Lily Linen Dress in Mustard Maize
I finished my Tessuti Lily Linen Dress in Mustard Maize on Sunday morning and wore it to a lunchtime family function. Nothing like a deadline to spur you on!
It was my first time working with linen and it was a dream to sew. Although my bust size suggested otherwise, I cut out the small as I had found this to be the best fit for me in the Gabby Dress – it was perfect for the Lily too.
The pattern was a stretch for my confident beginner sewing skills, but the instructions were clear and it came together without incident. The pockets took me a while to nut out (ie. it took numerous readings and re-readings of the instruction and lots of peering at the photos). I’m so glad I persisted (I almost left them off) as they really make the dress.
The dress is gorgeous and it is great to see you are no longer blogless (only headless!)

This is a fabulous dress! Love the way you’ve styled it with scarf and “where-did-you-get-those?’ shoes 🙂
Thanks CherryPixe. The shoes were on the sales rack (gotta love a bargin!) at Mountfords in Glenferrie Road Hawthorn (Melbourne). They are also listed on their website – http://www.mountfords.com.au/ViewFashion.aspx?id=I%0151FIMTJTN

Oh, here it is! I have heard people mentioning the Tessuti fabrics all the time. And, it seems they have patterns to go along with their fabrics, i did not know that! Thanks for sharing this.
