I decided to use this pattern for this African print cotton, as the style is quite simple which shows the fabric off well. I made a contrast plain navy band at the bottom to break up the pattern a bit. I made an elastic casing instead of the ties under the bust. Next time I think I’ll raise the elastic to further under the bust as I find I keep yanking the dress down a bit when I wear it.
