I made this dress a while back for my Craftsy course, but I only wore it for the first time this week, now that we are definitely getting into the warmer weather. The fabric is a cotton that is lovely and soft to wear. I bought it as a remnant, less than 1 m in length but 2.4 m wide, which makes me wonder if it originally was intended for sheeting? It is soft enough. It appears similar tp a batik wax print, though I have no idea if it is or not. The printed squares are not printed perfectly in rows (it is not my cutting and sewing that is off grain!!), which makes it look a bit skewiff. I did split the side French dart into 2, as I thought that 1 large dart messed with the print too much.
