I bought two pieces of LOL Tana Lawn from Fabric.com and it's taunting me!!! I am so lost as to what to make from it. I love dresses but I only bought 2 yards of each so they would have to be simple or able to use some solid color accents.

I'm open to all suggestions except fitted shirts. They don't work on me.

What did you make with your LOL??? Or plan to make? Just looking for some inspiration.

These are the two prints I bought

Ooh, I'll be watching this thread, Kim!! I bought 2pc/2yd ea, too. In fact, your first photo was my "runner-up" print. I love it!! I'm kind of stuck, too. I have it...NOW what?? I'm wondering if a tunic-y top would work for these? I have a couple of cute BWOF ones tagged for general purposes. I'll have to get a pic. At least one has a pleated bodice yoke...I'm wondering if this would work for the LOL?

Off to get my notepad and pen....

I know...it's like "Ok, now that you've got us...."

I'm leaning towards a skirt for one of them, maybe the peacock one. Maybe this in View E S2257

And maybe a simple dress for the other one.

Burda does have some nice blousey tunics that would work. I need to go peruse them.

That simplicity skirt (especially in one of the two styles on the bottom right column) would be great with the peacock print!

I also think the Colette ginger skirt would look very cute in that.

For a light blouse, how about Sewaholic's Pendrell?

This morning I filled an online album with LOL photos and your pick on the left made my list too!

I named my album Liberty Love with the description:

Quote:
Liberty, O Liberty, wherefore art thou $40 a yard!?!?


Seriously now, I think it has to be something simplistic, the print is so rich and full that details would be lost.

What do you think of V1236?



No suggestiongs as such but rather guidelines: clean lines, at the most pintucks or gathers, the fabric is definitely the diva on center stage!!!

It's only $28 still for a short time on Fabric.com and if you have a coupon, even better. That's the only reason I bought it.

I just made and reviewed Vogue 1236. It's a great pattern but I don't love it enough to use the LOL fabric

I keep look at this V8727 View D.

If you have a copy of Burda Magazine from June of 2005, there is a whole spread of the patterns made in LOL. I looked in the online archives for this issue, but only found them back to 2006 on the French site.

Well, I just blew my budget on something sewing-related or I would buy some LOL if I could (a lot of websites aren't int'l buyer friendly).

But I am crazy about that Vogue and I vote yes!

There are actually quite a few reviews from that issue on PR.

BWOF 06-2005 reviews

Definitely the Vogue dress. Perfect for it. Or perhaps Vogue dress for the peacock print and boho tunic for the other one. (Perhaps Hot Patterns peasant tunic or something similar, there are hundreds of patterns.)

Add. The 1236, not the other one wich has too many seamlines for that glorious print.
