In a couple of weeks I'll be attending the wedding of a dear friend in Atlanta. You don't even have to ask if I'm making something to wear, I think you already know the answer (wink)! So I want a cute little dress for the affair. As I mentioned a couple of posts ago I've already got my fabric and am trying to settle on the perfect pattern.
Here's my fabric.......
I LOVE it! It's a medium weight woven polyester something-or-another fabric.....I really can't remember what it is. It's almost like a rayon challis---I think it may be. But what I do know are that the colors are bold and vivacious. What attracted me to this fabric was the bold black design lines, streaks of corals, red and pinks and gray flowers. The print is pretty "in-your-face". Well with such a bold fabric I thought I'd pick a pattern that was a little understated and would really showcase the fabric.
Well I have 3 patterns I'm debating on:
New Look 6773
Which do you think would look best in my fabric? I'd love to know your opinion. I'm stuck at the moment on making a decision. I'm really liking the first 2 options. I hope to decide by Wednesday because I need to get to work on this ASAP!!!
Also, while in Atlanta of course I plan to visit fabric stores. I did the last time I visited a year ago and unfortunately forgot the names of the stores I visited. I have very limited time and want to spend my time going to fabric stores with the best fabrics for the best prices. Can you recommend any??? The names of Closeout/ Bargain fabric stores are always welcomed!!! Thanks for all of your help in advance.
Of course, I
