I think I had already made up my mind about the fabric I would use for the dress as soon as I saw the pattern, but it's always nice to umm and ahh and try on different options in your head before settling on one (or more if you fancy!).
I love the blue and black polka dot vintage cotton, but haven't found the perfect pattern for it yet, and the 'autumnal' coloured fabric is actually a vintage sheet!
I've decided to use up the rest of the forest green fabric I bought for the swing dress sew along Casey did earlier in the year. I've wanted a forest green dress for sometime now, and with it being autumn, it's really the perfect time.
Pleats, cap sleeves and a nice round neckline will be perfect I think.
ps) Thank you so much for your Vancouver tips! I'll be getting back to you asap :)
