Marigold flowers

I found this lovely “vintage” print fabric at Spotlight a few months back and a really liked the Marigold print. It’s supposedly a 60’s print that they pulled out of some archive and re-manufactured for their vintage collections. Such a nice idea of them to bring back the oldies!

So its only fitting that this warm Marigold print suits a summery dress. I used the Gathered Dress 06/2012 pattern, which I also used for my ‘Ice-creams in summer’ dress

Its a very easy pattern and quick to make. I love it!
