The topic is utilisation.
It was never my topic. I usually order and buy the fabric for one determined model, I always used to do it that way. In this case it was a rapport purchase. After the completion of the first version I had one meter of fabric left with exactly one rapport. Actually I planned to sew a new shirt with the rest, but then I would have been forced to cut the parrot into pieces. I objected this idea and decided to sew a new beach/city dress for my daughter.
Actually the dress was made without patterns. I just designed the sillhouette lines and the neckline, which is lower on the front side. I also added slits on every side. That gives the dress an individual touch and makes it easier to move with it.
