Description

This dress is made from a pretty simple pattern, McCalls 5586. I cut each flower out individually from a quilting cotton and sewed them back together. Unfortunately, these pictures don’t capture the negative space between the flowers well since I am wearing a slip. Blogged here .

    This is a brilliant use of a quilting fabric on a garment. Too many sewers try to make dresses out of quilting fabric, and it just doesn’t work. Quilting fabrics have no drape. Sewn up into a dress, quilt fabric hangs like a drape or paper. There’s no swish. Better to go with a cotton lawn or batiste if you really want cotton. Anyhow, back to the yoke. Brilliant. Did you use any wash-away stabilizer to temporarily tack down all those flowers?
