I got this fabric at IKEA. It’s a lot more modern that I typically buy, but I just liked it. Had no idea what I would do with it. I thought maybe for a liner of a bag or something. It has been sitting in my stash for a few months, and then I thought, ‘it would be fun to use the word fabric for a shirt’.
As I got out the pattern and the fabric, I thought how I wanted it a long shirt, well, a dress. The pattern also had a dress pattern, so we lengthened the dress even more and whipped it up. Because of the white see through (a bit) fabric I use it mostly for going to the beach with my suit on under. The underarm is a bit tight on my and the neck a wee bit high, but it fits and it’s fun to be wearing such modern clothing.
Because I made this more on a whim, and I don’t typically keep a lot of zippers on hand; I ended up using a red zipper for the back. With zippers I never know what color I’ll want for a project, or what length I’ll need. I don’t use them too often as of yet, so my zipper supply is limited. I actually really like the red zipper with a white and black dress.
Maybe if I can make a lining for it I can wear it out and not just to the beach.
