this really fabulous dress pattern by Serendipity Studio. I had to have it.
Then, I noticed that all of the dress samples for the pattern are made in quilting cottons.
I'm willing to be proven wrong, and it occurred to me that this is the perfect kind of dress to experiment with a quilting cotton--the design seems to benefit from the body of the fabric.
Then I decided I would use the quilting-est cotton I could find: crazy cat lady print! I mean, you would never find this in a nice crepe de chine, right?
In other news, new fabric in the shop and the sale continues! I found some great rayon challis as well as the yellow floral Ascher print I made the below dress in. Other favorites, like the Ascher bow print and mint gingham are re-stocked. Use code HAPPY4TH to get 10% off.
