I made a wedding quilt and a skirt with this fabric, and still, I had about 1 1/4 yard left over. I decided to use Simplicity 2922 to make this little shift dress. Cap sleeves, gathered on top, mid-knee length, and finished with re-purposed silk ribbon as bias tape. I added back darts to remove some of the extra fabric that gathered around the upper back. Great pattern for a simple style and leftover fabric.
Nothing to intricate or fancy, which just means that this dress might spend some serious time outside of my closet considering that I get the most use out of my simple, practical projects.
