I ,( like I imagine loads of people ), am obsessed with interesting fabrics, textures, colours , prints and patterns, fibre content all of these are fundamental to my purchasing and making decisions . Some prints are such that what I make is determined by that . This make is such a garment. I made it in 2020 a self drafted dress , in a cotton fabric from spotlight , that completely determined how I would lay out the pattern. I couldn’t bear to break up the print so it needed to be one piece.
I decided to open the front in 2022 , as I hadn’t worn it and thought I would get more wear out of it as a jacket. I still haven’t worn it but it has potential now.
I hope you are doing whatever creative pursuits fill you with joy.
What a beautiful display of creativity! Both as a dress and as a coat, you have done the fabric justice. Very pretty!
Thank you 🙏
