San Ramon, Calif...
I have been checking this fabric at the store several times. It has suede texture ( but it’s not) and color and print was so cool. First I thought about dress but quite couldn’t think of any cool design. Maybe I was a little too lazy to work on complicate design. So I thought about very simple mini skirt. No zipper. I added 3 inch side elastic band for waist and created one fold pleats in the center and two smaller pleats on both sides. Result was pretty good. It came out a little longer than I wanted. But overall, good.
