Hi Friends! Exciting news from the Love Notions team! It is time for another 5 dollar Friday pattern and this time it is the Lyric Peplum and Dress. In case you don’t know, Love Notions has been working hard on updating their older patterns to the current size block and I am loving their progress. The new size chart is inclusive through a 59.5 inch hip and I think their goal is to have standard and full bust size options available on all patterns where applicable.
The Lyric is a lovely woven pattern which comes with three length options. I made the peplum version with short sleeves since it is about to be summer here in Ohio! While we are talking about the options, let me give you the run down.
The Lyrcis is
- Meant for woven fabrics
- Three lengths: peplum, knee & midi
- Four bodice cup sizes
- Flared & gathered skirt options for dress lengths
- 6 sleeve options: sleeveless, short, flutter, bell and two lengths of bishop- elbow and full length
- Patch pockets for the gathered skirt
- Slash pockets for the flared skirt
- Darts for shaping
- Construction Videos
I have been wanting a button front woven shirt for a while now, so I am really pleased to now have this one in my collection. I know you can’t tell from my photos, but there are multiple buttons and buttonholes on this top. After all my work I am a little sad I didn’t pick a more noticeable button color! Anyhow I do love this fabric which I picked up at Joann’s last year, I think. I think now that I am loving my peplum top, I will absolutely need this is the dress version! Something else that I really liked about this bodice was the neckline finish method. I don’t think I have ever used single fold bias tape to finish a neckline, but I totally love the way it looks.
If you love the look of the newly updated Lyric, Please feel free to use my afflink to pick up the pattern while on sale this weekend!
