Description

I found this beautiful fabric and had to make something that would use the whole print, so a maxi dress it was. I used the Mission Maxi pattern by Jamie Christina and it’s a total winner… quick to whip up and makes for a comfy, flattering summer dress. However, I now know that lining up a print in a slippery jersey is royal pain in the butt! All the details here….

    I do love the fabric store – did you use the Tigerlily range. If you have used what I think you have, it looks great as this dress – I personally did not like that fabric much but it shows you how garment choice can really make or break a fabric.

      It is from the Tigerlily range, and I remembered seeing it as a Tigerlily dress which is probably what inspired me to do it as a maxi.

    WHOA!

    I had to stop the car and take a gander at this one.

    Most impressive! So much so that you win the, “It’s so hot I’d wear it, and I’m a guy!” award. Congratulations on your big win!

      There’s a new fabric shop opened in the Valley called ‘The Fabric Store’ and the whole shop is garment fabrics and really well priced too, about midway between Spotlight and Gardams.

      I am a regular already at the Fabric Store, so I must not be looking hard enough!! I will have to try harder next time. Thanks for letting me know and enjoy wearing your beautiful dress.
