I bought this fabric at the same time as the firework one.I wanted to just use a simple pattern to show of the fabric. This dress pattern is lovely and it has great curved side darts for shape. The fabric feels like silk and hangs so well. I did what i do normally with a plus size pattern, i trace and cut the smallest size leave no seam allowance and sew a large seam. It always works a treat .I made a batwing top out of the leftovers and also a top based on the dress pattern
I added some photos of my new fabrics, i need to stop buying as i look like a hoarder lol. Sorry theres omly.one photo of me wearing the dress but we where so busy dancing to an elvis impersonator lol x
