My fabric is here! Can you pls help find me a pattern?

Postby mangajude » Thu Jun 16, 2011 1:01 pm

Im so excited, :yahoo: I have been waiting for this fabric for ages! It is 'The Ghastlies', I preorder from the states. Is it sad i'm so excited about fabric?! :giggle:

I plan on making a nappy wrap and a dress for my first project with this fabric (theres quite a bit!)

Anyway, I need some help from you lovely people, I need some suggestions on what dress pattern to use, it is a very bold patterned fabric, and quite large, so it needs to be a simple/basic pattern, ideally something with sleeves/party dress style.

My DD is 5 months but I don't want to rush myself on this one so I shall make it 6-9month (shes still in size 0-3 months).

I hope you can help, the more patterns I look at myself the more I confuse myself! :-?

I cant wait to start it! :sewing:

Thank you!

This is the fabric BTW

What kind of fabric is it? Woven or knit fabric?
