I had seen a couple of black and white maxi dresses on pinterest, so when I saw this fabric, I knew exactly what I was going to make with it.
I even managed to match the strips. Yay me!
I bought this fabric from Fabric House in Goldhawk road. I normally don't buy from there but I am glad I went there. I really love this jersey. It is so soft, it feels like it has some bamboo content, but I could be wrong. It is cheap as well, retailing for £3.50/metre. I got the last 1.5m on the roll so I made him give me for the price of a metre. Hagglers rule!
There is really nothing much to say about the construction of the dress. It is just a really simple dress, with only two pattern pieces cut on the fold. A really easy project for anyone looking to try their hand at sewing with knit fabric. We are still having some sunshine here in the UK, so I know I shall be rocking this dress for another month or two, before the sun decides to retire from whence it came.
