Liesl + Co Sintra Dress

The other spring pattern I tested for Liesl + Co was the Sintra Halter top and dress. 

This pattern is a kind of revisit of a top within the Butterick Lisette 6464 pattern (which I made back here), but this time it's all about the top, with varying cup sizes and a dress option.

I was pretty sure I was going to like this one, so I went straight for some long stashed Nani Iro double gauze, that came from Janice at UrbanSew 

I was a bit size-shy after my slightly tight pants, so I sewed a straight 12 (measurements were between 10 and 12) to make sure I had enough room over the hips.

We were out in the country at Christmas time and there was certainly some warm enough weather for this dress to come out to play.

The pattern introduction is over on the Oliver + S blog here. I love the faux pantsuit look of combining the Sintra halter top and the Cannes trousers in the same fabric.
