Fabulous Fabrics

Every fabric that I see... I evaluate as to what kind of dress would that make... could I use it for a ruffle... a pocket or the main body of a dress.  Just a few days ago I came across some fabulous fabric... so bright and bold

And here is the first dress I have made using this fabric

In remembrance of my dad who passed away 5 years ago today

My father also passed away on this date, only it was 10 years ago. I am still greiving for him and it will never get any easier. My thoughts are with you on this day and always.

PS That dress is adorable. :)

Love the precious dress and those rich fabrics! Do you use a pattern for the different panels or just use a large rectangle depending on how large your remnant is?

I also miss my dad who was the world to me. Someday I'll be in heaven with him God willing.

i piece together differently depending on how much fabric I have... these were fat quarters so the puces were 7" x 18' and then I added the ruffle
