Made for Jungle January, this dress is the ultimate in confidence boosters!
The pattern is New Look 6773, using pieces D and J. It’s very simple – but when you’re sewing fabric with pink Zebra stripes and black Leopard spots, you want to go simple! I whipped the dress up in 2 evenings – it’s fully lined (my first!) and I even managed to fit it myself, something that I usually am too inexperienced to do.
Of course, when you have an animal print dress, it is COMPULSORY that you hide in the bushes, am I right?
Blogged over at The Crazy Gypsy Chronicles.
Crazy animal print, bought as a birthday present by my Cousin when I was in South Africa a year ago. I’m unsure of its content, but it’s possibly a cotton blend.
