Lycra ITY knit, animal print pattern
What was your inspiration?
I saw this animal print knit fabric at my local store - they don't usually have any knits so I had to buy this. Plus I see animal prints everywhere at the moment.
What are you most proud of?
I spent a lot of time to get the fabric design how I wanted it on the dress. Only a little while ago I would have just cut it according to the pattern layout and had more of a random deisgn, but it was worth the extra work.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
You can read more about this project on my blog here:
This is a quick and easy project for new sewists, and has princess seams in the back for fitting adjustment. Combine this with the knit fabric and its easy to get a good fit on this dress.
