This is one of 5 Woodland Pixie dresses I have made… each one made out of remnant fabrics .. ranging from silk and taffeta to velvet and suedette … it is a tad tricky due to its patchwork nature …
Alot of my dresses i don’t really work to a pattern with i tend to just cut the fabric and pin it straight onto the dolly and pray!!! it works for me.. most of the time … not really a tequnique that I should recommend !!!
As for fabrics… all i can say is that it is patchwork… I use what works together… certain textures and colours mixed together may surprise you so don’t disgard it thinking it won’t work.. try it anyway .. that’s how amazing things happen!!!
