Then Darn Cheap Fabrics put up pics of their pineapple print fabrics on IG. All I'm saying is their phone purchasing service is quick, just like their mailing service.
Here's a simple romper - made in one day. McCalls 6362.
This pattern is designed for wovens and since this fabric has very little stretch, I made it without a zipper in the back but used lace elastic at the neckline and armholes. I'm rethinking this and about to add a zipper at the centre front neckline - in black of course.
I've used this as a go-to piece when the weather is hot/steamy and I'm lazying around the house. Well I don't lazy too much when I can sew instead.
You know how they say 'what you do on the first day of the year, you'll do all year?" Well I cut and made this dress on NY Day - Vogue 8949.
|I'm aiming to blend into the garden.|
The day I wore it is was great to wear but I felt a bit meh, so I added the zipper to the front right seam for a 'bit of interest' and raised the hem to just above the knees.
I keep the zip closed for work.
Now I'm thinking of applying a longer zipper in the front skirt seam for an evening version.
Uhm ... I have enough of this print left to make another dress but this fabric is fairly firm (linen) so I'll have to pattern dive and find something with interest.
