U-oh!

Dress from Anthropologie

Ok, you know how I said this blog was to chart the progress of pattern cutting?  Well, I also warned you it would end up being about fabric – well, why not!  I have my first project, and it isn’t what I expected it would be!  I was going to make a skirt, but I took a neighbour to Fred Winter in Stratford today because she needed something, and I ended up succombing to some Liberty Tana Lawn.  I had seen this dress on Pinterest a while ago and thought it would be cool to make, so when the fabric practically sat up and demanded to be purchased, who was I to say “no”???  So project no. 1 is going to be this dress.

What do you think??

Just as a matter of interest, if you are a sucker for Liberty’s Veruna Wool, Fred Winter have a limited selection right now for £30 per metre.  They will post samples and are quite happy to pop lengths in the post!

I love fabric, and sewing. And I could do nothing else but sew, all day, every day, if I could!

  1. Great combo of fabrics! That is something I need to work on. I’m putting it in my notebook to make something with three different fabrics. Very nice indeed.
