I got this bright idea to use two different patterns to create a maxi dress. I used Simplicity (Cynthia Rowley) 2497 for the top, Simplicity (Project Runway) 1881 for the skirt. It wasn’t easy working with this fabric, tough to get everything aligned just right. If I had to do it over again I would choose a different fabric.
Silky print, thread, zipper
