I bought this beautiful hot air balloon fabric a few weeks ago and so have plucked up the courage to actually cut into it. I hadn't realised until after I bought it that Roisin had also made a dress from it!
Following my somewhat steep learning curve I did make a muslin of this bodice.
The straps were interesting- well, turning them right side up is always a challenge but I found a thick knitting needle worked a treat!
I used a really nice quality lining fabric for this dress too so it should be super cool come the summer!
Although the pattern requires a half circle skirt I had enough fabric to make a full circle cos they really are my fave!
What do you think? I've named this one the Zoë dress after my middle daughter who adored the fabric!
