So I have this great fabric. It’s fairly stiff, has a slight stretch cross-wise and looks a bit like a twill weave (still not great at identifying fabric, so could be wrong). The print is massive (each element is about 20cm) and very striking. It’s 140cm wide and I have about 2 metres.

This is the fabric

Next to my Kindle to show the size of the print

I bought some last year and made this skirt, but due to lack of planning and various elementary errors, I don’t think the print has been used to its full potential.

What can I make with it??? I was thinking the Danielle dress, but it also looks good as a simple a-line, are there any other ideas?

Suggestions welcome!

    I really like what you did with the skirt – it works really well with the black inverted pleats to ‘break it up’ a bit. Maybe some sort of dress that has panels in it would be good too, there’s quite a few of those patterns around at the moment, like the Matthew Williamson Sheath Dress or the Panel Dress from 05/2012. It could work with the Mondrian dress too?

    What about a loose fitting coat? It would be striking trimmed with a black accent and large black buttons.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    The guy that sold the fabric to me suggested leggings/skinny jeans, which could be interesting…

      Certainly interesting! Does it have enough stretch in it for that? Go for it if they’re your style though :-)
