      Thanks for checking out the project! When someone showed me the fabric, it reminded me of my mother’s gold/brown paisley print in a smaller scale short sleeve top from the late 70s/early 80s.

      My mum had something very similiar. I find these kind of prints make a statement and your dress is one x
