This fabric, possible proof that I shouldn't hit the fabric store during a sugar crash, is going to become (I hope) this dress in view B. I think I'll be making the collar, sleeve cuffs, and the frontspiece (the button part) in a nice, crisp white.
Yes, yes, it's kids' fabric, but...well, it is a flattering shade of blue, allows for quite a bit of variety in accessorizing, and...darnit, it was just too cute to pass up! Especially at 50% off. If I screw up, it's my first dress, so it won't be that big a deal, and I can always make an apron from it. ;) And look at the cute tiger! And the expression on the little critters' faces!
Anyhow, it's obvious that the print is pretty tiny, so it won't be clear unless someone is up close. I'm hoping it turns out well! I suppose the print is REALLY young for me, but it's one of those things where one just knows if they don't buy it, they'll forever regret it. Besides, a little levity - even sartorially - is never a bad thing. ;)
I'll have to add my other fabrics just so y'all don't worry about me! (Some are just gorgeous...)
