Isn't it fantastic? I loved the fabric but wouldn't have initially picked it for use in a dress as I assumed that it was more of a craft fabric and the wrong weight for dressmaking (I've made the mistake of using the wrong kind of fabric before so I'm fairly cautious now). But no! Roisin's dress was so lovely that I was reassured it would be perfect for a dress, so I had to buy some fabric for myself in this colourway:
I'm definitely envisioning some kind of dress, but I'm not sure yet what kind - don't worry I might throw the question out on my blog, with a few potential patterns!
