Day 11 #BeeMine- My 30 day blog challenge- Fashion With Fabric

Working in Theatre means it’s hard to get to see stuff! A rare trip then, to the Globe Theatre in London sees me in a Bold pink Drapey dress. Hope the show’s good!

    I absolutely love this dress, and bought the book just for the pattern. What fabrics would work to make it summer-friendly?

      Hi Rachel,

      Thanks for your lovely compliment.I actually wore my drapey dress last summer when testing the patterns ( not the sleeved version) Try finding a lighter weight ponte knit, or a scuba fabric. It would possibly work with a softer jersey like a bamboo, but you’d need to fit as you sew as the extra stretch might change the sizing a little.

      Happy Stitching :)

    Wow, dress looks amazing in such a bright bold colour! Wasn’t keen on the look of the dress in the book so wasn’t planning on making it but after seeing this post will def be giving it a go!
