So I dug around my cheap-o stash and found just enough miscellaneous cotton to make this dress:
- White Ikea bedsheet that I was using for amateurish photo backdrop, and later for muslin, and now it will be the skirt of the dress. It may be enough for a bias layout plus lining.
- mjb likes the chocolate-chartreuse combo (so do I!), but there's no existing chocolate cotton, and the closest I have to chartreuse is olive, which looks awfully drab. I do have a piece of red, which is enough for the bands.
- No gray cotton laying around either, so the bodice will be black Kona cotton that was meant for another project, and now it will be the bodice plus lining.
... which I think is the same dress as this:
... which is a Spring 2008 Gucci.
Hm... I probably need to start making winter dresses after this one.
