Continuing the animal theme here is my latest dress. I see a lot more novelty print dresses in my future, because it seems I am incapable of growing up, or acting too mature ;)
If I had to pick a safari animal that best represented me I would pick a zebra- they are so bold and print-tastic! Sorry bit of a photo dump in this post (I need to learn how to edit!)
Feel free to lol at the odd placement of my legs. I am not actually mega tall or hitting the roof of my apartment it’s just because I am standing on futon thing.
I bought the fabric about a year ago at spotlight and I originally intended to make a skirt out of it. I’m so glad I made a dress instead! There wasn’t a lot of fabric to work with but there was easily enough for Simplicity 2417 (my stash busting pattern)!
I realize wearing such a busy print is not everyone’s cup of tea but I enjoy it. I love busy prints! Every time I make a dress out of a poly/cotton like this one, the garment gets a lot of wear because the fabric barley creases and its really durable!
I wore the dress today during a Christmas shopping expedition with my mum. It’s pretty comfortable and easy to wear (the waist is nice and roomy). I wore it chunky wooden platform shoes. My mum approved :).
So to conclude my foolishness: Zebras are awesome and now I have a dress covered in them. Mission accomplished!
