I feel like a 1970's Charlie's Angel in this dress. Perhaps that's why I don't feel comfortable in it as looking at their characteristics a Charlie's Angel I would not make!
So I don't really know what I was thinking when I bought this pink/black/white spandex blend jersey. I even bought it with this pattern in mind, yet all the detail is lost with such a busy print as you can see.
This is the diagram...
There is nothing wrong with the fabric either. The fabric is gorgeous. In my opinion It's just not the right print for this dress. It was lovely to work with and it's a nice stable knit but soft enough for drape. I bought it from Truro Fabrics which is my local store. Well if you can call 20 miles away local, but it's the nearest! I've heard some bloggers drive for miles and miles to the nearest fabric store!
On close up, the print is not so bad. From a distance it's all just a colourful blur! There's a lovely wrap-around tie in there somewhere...
Oh yes.... there it is!
Anyhows I'm just not feeling it at all in this dress. So it's sadly one of those I am just going to have to put down to experience.
What do you guys think?
I can hope of course that perhaps one of Charlie's Angels will snap it up and take it off my hands.... haha;)
