Don't mind me skiting, but I'm feeling a little bit fabulous in my new dress.
Mine is a cotton print, recommended by Cassandra at Oh Sew Noosa, with a silk carmeuse collar, from Spotlight. Spotlight do have a matching chiffon, which I could use for the scarf, but I think I have spent more than enough money on fabric lately. Originally, I wanted an all-cotton dress (I am trying to wean myself off sewing silks, because I don't really have a silk sort of lifestyle), but I could not find a cotton for the collar that I liked.
Normally, I love pattern drafting, but this time I thought that success would come more quickly if I cut a muslin directly on my body double. As you can see, I have run out of plain fabrics to use for my muslins...this remnant was meant to be a princess costume.
