In the works
Here are three fabric/pattern combos I’m thinking of next. Honesty counts, so spill…
Cotton pique, and a little twee and flowery for my typical tastes. But I must have been drawn to it for some reason when I picked it up few years ago. Maybe the juxtaposition of dainty would suit this uncut 70s pattern with the peek-a-boo neckline? This pattern looks like a quick win & pretty easy to put together. It will be my first vintage (non-reproduction) pattern, and I love the way they’re set up so far. (On a side note, this would make a great LBD! But I’m trying to use up my stash before buying more)
Another loud, decade spanning pattern/print combo (sans pocket, of course). I’ve been dying to make this dress, and love staring at this ridiculously fun crinkled polyester chiffon. I bought it on the cheap in California this spring, along with some other wonderful finds. Would this be wearing too much of a good thing?
And in a completely different direction, I love this knit, and am thinking of doing it up in the dress on the left. Below is the technical drawing, as the deets are pretty difficult to decipher. I don’t have much yardage, so this idea may have to get scrapped if matching the design is a no-go. I originally had the top from Hot Patterns (below, left) in mind. Stick to original plan, or go with the knit dress?
Help a sister out. xoxo
