Raleigh, North C...
I am completely in love with this fabric! It’s jersey print from Mood – super soft with a decent amount of weight. I originally purchased a few yards with the intent to make it into a different dress, but I had a sudden urge to make a maxi dress and I am so glad that I used this fabric for it. I used Vogue 1352 – overall easy and straightforward pattern, but I did get pretty irritated with the neckband. I felt that the markings on the band did not make a lot of sense (.unless I was being careless and not paying enough attention). Despite the neck, I think the rest of the dress is very striking and now I want more maxi dresses!
There’s a few more pictures on my blog :) bethstitches.wordpress.com
