lucky mistakes











dress - self made

my favorite fabrics
are those from remnant boxes
and not only because of their low price
but because they often come in unusual prints
prints that happened by accident
..
fabric i used for this dress
was supposed to be beige
with rows of colorful flowers printed all over
(you can spot those flowers at the skirt hem)
but something went wrong
and these 1.5 meters of fabric
ended up almost without flowers
having this gray leaking pattern instead

    1. thanks, mm.. yeah, it's really comfortable, and what i like the most is that the v neck is deep but so well 'secured' that you can actually play pool in the dress :)

  4. Oh I love your dress, and you have solved a mystery for me! I loved the small image in the front of the magazine, but it didn't seem to match the line drawing - I see now that you can tie the ties multiple ways! I have it traced out already, seeing yours makes me want to rush home and make it immediately!

    1. :) thanks.. oh, you can even tie the ties at the front, making a bow (if your fabric is less bulky than mine)..

    1. thanks, carolyn.. i like to think that original fabric was a mistake, and that this remnant is the only part of the bolt that was 'right'

  10. Totally loving the fabric and it's 'mistake' (something tells me this 'mistake' fabric is SO much more interesting than whatever it was supposed to be...) And the dress is gorgeous - so flattering.
