I’ve been trying to step out of my comfort zone of plain block colours and try something new with prints. I found this print whilst on holiday in Cape Town and originally thought of making it into a maxi skirt. In the end I went with a statement shape for a statement print. I tried my best to do some pattern matching (but not really…). It took a while (and a huge initial seam allowance) to change the pattern to suit a maxi style but i’m happy with the way it turned out. I to-and-fro over whether it was a good idea to make a whole dress out of this print, but when the sun’s out and the red lippy’s on- I kinda like it. I think I’ll try and make this with less frills and resort back to a block colour next time.
Printed cotton ~3metres to make this maxi style with long sleeves.
Flirty dresses, a cropped cami, and glam trousers for modern flappers.
