The first of these I made from some lawn which I got as a 3m coupon from Classic Textiles on the Goldhawk Road earlier this year. My sister tells me that it's "very Antoine et Lili", and since she pointed that out, I kind of agree. (Antoine et Lili have several shops in Paris and elsewhere in France - I love their aesthetic).
This didn't take long to make - I decided since the skirt was gathered and had quite a lot of fabric in it I wouldn't bother to line it - and I'd made it before so it came together pretty quickly. However, once it was finished and I tried it on in front of a mirror on a sunny day I decided that actually, the skirt definitely needed lining because it was practically see through. So I cut an A-line skirt lining and sewed it in. I really like this fabric / pattern combo and am very pleased with how it's turned out.

And now autumn is approaching and my thoughts are turning to knitting so it probably won't get put back together until next spring now. I still have five dresses which are cut out and waiting to be sewn up (although in fact one is nearly done and just needs hemming), so perhaps I should get those done first, especially since one of them I cut out last year, and another one in January. But the siren call of wool, and knitting, is getting louder...
