Back in november, Tilly from Tilly and the Buttons offered to send me her then-latest sewing pattern, the Francoise dress, for me to do a review. Needless to say I was thrilled: I really like the style of this dress, reminiscing of the sixties, and I was already thinking about all the possibilities for colorblock with the seaming and the button tab. I actually had one particular color combination that I was obsessed with. By the time I was able to find the fabric, make the dress, take pictures and post on this blog, I had fallen into a spatio-temporal vortex and guess what, it is now the end of July. Argh! It kind of makes me feel better that Sonja from Ginger Makes posted her own review of Francoise just a few weeks ago, so thanks Sonja!
