Sewing a Penny dress with Lisa Comfort's cotton lawn

When Minerva Crafts offered me the chance to review Lisa Comfort’s new fabric range I leapt at the chance. I absolutely love all of her ‘Sew Over It’ patterns and so to be able to make one of her patterns in a fabric she designed seemed like the perfect opportunity. The hardest part was choosing which colour and print to use and finding the perfect pattern to pair it with! The fabric is a lightweight cotton lawn and is available in a range of prints and colour ways. Given the scorching hot summer we have had I decided that I needed a nice loose fitting dress to match the breezy cotton lawn fabric. The Sew Over It Penny dress and Lisa Comfort’s cotton lawn in navy Elderflower print* looked like a winning combination! To read my fabric review and see all of my pictures of this gorgeous dress head on over to the Minerva crafts blog!
