maxi dress

I had a big struggle with this one, since I came up with the drawing first. That's always the trouble when you do a cool looking drawing and translating that into patterns. So I started to drape it and the first toile was a big fail and looked like a massive mou mou (is that how you spell it?). Second toile, it's looking better, still not the drawing, but I think it has moved away from it in a good way. The fabric will be silk crepe de shin and will be printed in my lily print which I tested out today at uni and it looked great (although the uni printer's colours were a bit off). That will be in another blog.
