This is the closest I will ever get to making my own "textile"...
I want to make this dress in time for the ASE...Simplicity 1314
For that "contrast" center front panel, instead of leather or faux leather I wanted to use a quilted fabric. I got the idea from Suzanne, who used quilted sweatshirt fabric for the center panel of one of her two dresses.
But I don't have time to go find/buy quilted fabric and matching fabric for the non-center front panel.
And using stash fabric is a GREAT thing.
So I whipped up those samples above.
Question 1: What do you think is better?The 1" or the 1/2" scale (I think 1/2")
Question 2: Should I make it in turquoise or in black?
(the whole dress would be made out of the same fabric, it's just that I would quilt the center front panel as in the first pic above. Should the whole dress be black, or should the whole dress be turquoise?)
(p.s. I loved your comments from my last post--I swear I will reply to them in the next 24 hours. Or maybe even right now!). Update: I replied to all your comments in the last post--thank you for them.
