This was quite possibly one of my favorite fabric finds from my NYC fabric district shopping spree. It was a last minute grab in one of the smaller side street shops, a beautiful Italian cotton. I was walking by and saw this sitting in a large pile of bolts – it drew me in like a moth to a flame. I needed to have it!!! So much so, that I couldn’t even wait for the gentleman to come grab the bolt – I picked it right up off the ground (which is generally frowned upon for liability reasons).

I knew this was going to make a fabulous dress for me, for Chloe, for somebody.


My Mom thought it looked like a shower curtain when I showed her. Maybe she was right.


I still love it though.

I used the quick and easy maxi dress tutorial found HERE by A Small Snippet. Very easy to follow and highly recommended. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!
