Sometimes you run through the stash and find a piece of fabric (or sack of yarn) and wonder why you bought that? I want to make a summer-ish dress and trolled the garage stash and found this piece of stretch cotton. I remember buying it two summers ago in NYC on a layover because I bought so much fabric that the heavy sack was yanking my arm out of the socket.
When I bought this fabric I remember having a “plan”. I now have no recollection of said plans and think with flowers that size I better choose my pattern carefully. I shall give much thought to Hazel from Colette Patterns. It has a shirred skirt to move those flowers around some, but I worry about the flowers being hacked about in those fabulous darts. Further study is required.
Two more patterns I’ve got my eye on (well pre-ordered if we’re confessing) are Sewaholic Cambie Dress and Derby Dress by Christine Haynes. Both of these aren’t out yet, but I shall have to keep these in mind for this floral. Or that fabric I just found in the stash with peacocks on it. Pink peacocks. Wha?
Any ideas for Big Flowers?
