I went fabric shopping and saw this lovely yellow. I was very disappointed because I think the fabric was spoiled because the yellow was not evenly distributed. They called it the MissPrint fabric hence the project name. The white is also apart of the same fabric.
Inspire by a Maggy London style. It has an empire bodice that extends into a collar and stitched pleats at waist. Completely lined with invisible zipper at back. I am so in love with the collar and the pleats.
I use the fabric in a way that the most yellow is used for the skirt and the scattered part is used for the top. This dress test my patience and my manipulation skills but in the end it was well worth it because I have a well balance dress. :-)
What do you think of these summery styles?
