After the success of my first Lilou dress, I decided to make another project in time for my birthday – another Lilou dress, this time in dinosaur print!
Isn’t the dinosaur print fabric awesome?? My husband Dannii and I love dinosaurs, especially T-Rexes, so when I saw this fabric last year I couldn’t resist picking up a few metres! I’ve been hanging onto it until I felt confident enough to make an actual garment, and I figured now was as good a time as any.
I made the gathered skirt version of the dress again, with pockets, and added a fun pop of colour in the lining – yellow, my favourite colour! I kept the hemline a little bit shorter than my last Lilou dress, though, and I like this length a lot more.
I am super happy with how this project came together, and I absolutely love the end result. It’s definitely shot to the top of my list of favourite dresses!
