I picked up a cotton print last year when my local Fabricland was having a massive moving sale. I have been undecided about which pattern to match it with, but as summer is waning I thought I'd better get a move on!
The print is quite strong, and I wanted to really highlight the graphic feel of it, so finally decided on using the Terrace Dress by Liesl & Co, a dress I've made before with success in large prints.
The Terrace is a simple pattern; cut-on sleeve, bias facing at the neck, and turned under sleeve and bottom hem. The fit is perfect for me -- I didn't have to narrow the neckline on this like I usually do with most patterns, and grading out a bit from bodice to hips results in a great fit.
And of course, a matching mask is the accessory du jour! (I use the Dhurata Davies free pattern)
Very pretty dress and it looks lovely on you. Versatile too -- casual or dressy.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I really love how it turned out 🙂 I agree that it will be a versatile one!Delete
