I bought this Mood Fabrics' pink cotton-polyester jacquard
initially thinking it would be a great bottom weight for me. Well, it would be a great pants/ short fabric but the print is much brighter than I thought and I didn't want to be a Nana/Mom walking around with a hot pink behind! LOL.
Well, in comes Butterick 5781 and Meredith's need for a dress for a cowboy wedding in October.
This will be the cutest style with a jean jacket (if needed for the weather) and her cowboy boots. I lengthened the bodice by 1" and the skirt length by 1-1/2". The skirt length had to change to 1" extra as there just wasn't that much fabric.
Can you say lucky Lori? That is for sure with this fabric and pattern. I had no scraps and I was able to lay all the bodice pieces out in one width of fabric. A definite plus in print matching

The lining is from stash. As you can see, the bodice is complete, ready for her to try on Saturday and I am going to make the skirt tonight. After I check the fit of the bodice, this will be quick to finish up.
Oh, one more thing, this pattern is a A/B, C, D cup sizes! Yea!
What are your projects?
