New Fabric/New Find Friday #87


This is a cotton print that I found on sale a few months ago and this picture does not do it justice. It is a pretty pink color with a stylized paisley in grey with areas colored in blues and light orange-yellow. I hope to show you a better picture later when I finish the project I have in mind.
 First I was thinking that I would use it for a scarf but then I realized that with a distinct pattern on the front and a solid back it might not work well for a scarf. I then saw this (see image below) and thought that is what I will do with it!! I will make a dress out of an old shirt and this fabric for the skirt and make it so that it can be also used as a maternity dress. I remember while being pregnant and right after having bee that dresses and skirts were my go to clothes because they fit so much better than anything else.

I have everything ready now I just need to figure out how to put it together. I have only made one piece of clothing for myself and that was in 8th grade and it was in a class-this should be interesting. I will not be able to work on it until after the first of the year but I will be sure to show you how it turned out when I do.
