I bought this cotton dress fabric from an Etsy store called theDelhi Store. See below in materials for the link to this wonderful little online bazaar. The fabric is very reasonable per metre and postage would have to be the best in the world and quite quick in arriving from India to Australia. It was a gamble but what a delight when I received the parcel. The fabric feels like Liberty and sews like Liberty which is pure pleasure for me. Unfortunately the printed pattern on the fabric was warped and I could not match up the pattern on the side seams but overall, I am thrilled with this dress. I cannot even remember buying this pattern (New Look 6803) that I had in my stash as I rarely buy patterns, but it was a dream to make and fitted straight up with no alterations. I can see more of these dresses in this pattern and with fabric from the Delhi Store.
