I ordered this fabric a couple of months ago. It was supposed to turn into a bag, and there is still a possibility that some of it will, but for now we have a dress.
The print is from the Charisma line by Gail Kessler for Andover fabrics. I love the print, and think that it will look lovely on my niece. For some reason though, this fabric has given me fits. I have made errors when cutting out every project that I've started with this fabric.
I unintentionally added an extra three inches to the neckline of this dress. To make up for my mistake, I added a pleat, which would have looked nicer if the print was smaller.
To make the pleat look like it truly belonged there, I covered the top portion of it up with a faux placket.
I have to say, that I love the way it turned out. It was quite a happy accident. I also love the mini pom pom trim that I used to line the dress and bloomers.
You may recognize the pattern from this past project. Remember that bright sunny dress. I miss bright sunny days, and warm weather. The pattern is simplicity, but has been discontinued.
Thanks for all of your interest in my fleece slippers. I'll try to write up a tutorial within the week.
