I was thrilled when I found this fabric in a remnant bin for a fraction of the cost per metre. It was screaming to be made into something festive but it was an odd length and I couldn’t decide whether to make it into a top (leaving potentially a lot of wasted fabric) or a party frock (but without enough fabric to make much more make than a sleeveless dress) — so I decided to make both. Now I have not just one but 3 holiday outfits and more room in my suitcase for Christmas presents – JOY!
This project has made me eager to design more 2 or 3 for 1 outfits — more on this on my blog which will be up and running in the new year.
