to make a dress out of this jersey fabric.
and I really like the result
I did say that I would like to make a colour block one but, I think I'm going to buy black stretch fabric instead. This will be my one and only LBD.
It was a very easy make and turned out better than expected. I would make it again in black, longer and with a long tied sash instead of the front band.
I think, considering how I'm usually turned out, it's quite smart on me. I can see me wearing it with a long, black sleeveless waterfall cardi and boots during colder seasons and doing lunch with the girls.
I am also in the process of making a simple, print fabric pencil skirt for the 17-Y-O who is interested in all fabric African at the moment.She really wants an African print blazer too.
I am doing a muslin for her to check the fit for a dress. She likes dresses. I am using the Surefit Designs system and hopefully I can make whatever designs she can dream up in her clever arty brain so long as it's simple. (LOL).
Did you ever hear the story of the peacock?
It's a beautiful tail!
