fabric stash #2 – what was I thinking?

After I started sewing this dress, I realised that this fabric was meant to be dress lining, for an idea I had years ago. I used a cross-over top and extended it to become a cross-over dress. The fabric has good two-way stretch, for lining, but a nightmare for a dress.
The colour is not one of my ‘colours’ so again, what was I thinking.

Here is an example of why the top works well with the right fabric.

If I do this style again, it will be using a one-way stretch, dark fabric with limited waistline features.


  1. Sorry, but I have to agree with you, it is definately not your colour and as far as fabric content goes I’m just getting my head around this.Does this still count as part of the stash reduction for the contest?
