Description

I bought this fabric to make a bag, but I couldn’t resist making a dress out of it.. I have combined it with courtelle which looks like snake leather. The pattern is from a Scandinavian magazine, Alt om Handarbeide 05/2014 – and I’m very Happy with my dress ;-)

Material Notes

Printed cotton and courtelle snake print foil.

    Yes, I also know, buy fabric for something and then sew anything else. Great choice because this dress is totally amazing xo

    Fabulous dress! Great idea to use this fabric for a dress instead of a bag. I would totally do the same :-)

    Very hip and cool. I don’t suppose we’ll ever see ‘Handwork" on our stands in Switzerland, but now I’ll keep a lookout.

      Thanks a lot sweet Mary! I think you would love that magazine, but unfortunately it’s only published in Norway, Denmark and Sweden, but it’s possible to buy it on the web :)
