Description

Tulips galore and some more appliqued to the front of this bag and I have more of this fabric to make a dress? I am a bit afraid of so much brilliant color but I do need a dress for an event in April, what do you think?

Material Notes

jersy knit tulip fabric and a few pieces of satin. lots of interfacing and a zipper pouch inside for small things.

    If this fabric was sitting in my sewing room, and I had an event in April, I think I would sew Simplicity #2724 and make the tulip fabric the skirt part and have the blouse part of the dress be a solid color. Beautiful!! Good luck and post pics of whatever you create!

    Like Hooley said it could only be yours! As always your work is spectacular. Hmmmm. I think if you were to mix the fabric with black or mauve you would have a well balanced dress. On it’s own it would be too much. Thats my opinion. If you make a dress please post it so we can all share oohs and awh’s again! Happy Sewing!

    Gorgeous! I knew it was one of yours as soon as I saw it! P.S. It’s Autumn for us in the southern hemisphere – I’m jealous.
