Antrim, Co Antri...






i ordered this aztec fabric online and i detested it when it arrived! i was itching to try this dress out so i thought i’d use the fabric.i figured i could always bin it. once i got the shape sorted. i liked it when it was done though. the reason theres 2 is cause i made one as lining but liked it as well lol. i might shorten one to wear as a top??? or change the front panal on one to pink? i’ve enough fabric left to make a batwing top for zumba as well!! not bad for about £9 lol.

Material Notes

cotton based stretch jersey with jersey lining.

    This dress really came alive with the print , I really love the one with print down the middle, almost snake-like (in a good way, that is). Great work!
