You will be relieved to know that it has gone straight back into the bin.
Lessons learnt from this little exercise?
1. Don't buy silky bright coloured fabric - unless making pj's for my children (and I still wouldn't use this).
2. Don't be lazy and look for the "quick" make dress - they are usually shapeless sacks (that's what makes them quick)
3. When that "little voice" is trying to tell me something - stop and listen!
Not to be deflated - I'm looking for a more complex project this week - maybe the shirtmaker dress I've been wanting to make for ages (and it has buttons, so I can use it for the next Sew Weekly challenge).
What do you think? I know this fabric is quite loud as well, but I think it will work. Tommy Hilfiger did a shirt in fabric similar to this and I just loved it ... so I think this is my next project. Don't you just love my new red chickens? I just got them so had to put them in the piccie too!
