Yeah, I said Earf.
My best friend went to New York City last month, and before he left, I requested that he buy me some fabric ("Something printed, and stretchy!") and he came back with SIX yards of this.
I guess he went down to the Garment District and looked at quite a few stores. One man presented him with KITTEN HEADS on a knit (I dont think I would have minded this, actually...) and other such terrifying prints.
He found this print eventually, and took it up to the counter. He asked for two yards, and was told the price was $6 per yard. He said "Alright" and as the guy was cutting it, he took his wallet out...he had a bunch of singles so it looked like he was carrying a ton of cash (This is best friends first trip to NYC, if you cant tell) So another employee of the store comes up to him, screams "ITS 12 DOLLARS A YARD AND YOU MUST TAKE THE ENTIRE BOLT". Eric obviously is WTF-ing the guy and they proceed to haggle for a good 20 minutes.
He got six yards for $16. I dont even know how that works.
I used the same idea as the American Apparel easiest dress evar for the top, plus banding for the collar and the sleeves because cheera hates hemming, added a coordinating kelly green band, and then took a ton of fabric and pleated the hell out of it for the skirt. The green is a knit and not a lycra like the print, so they photographed differently and look like different colors. They're not perfect, but they're pretty close, in real life.
As you can see, I am a shameless hipster that loves Apple and Ikea. Also note that cheera participates in the ancient bloody sport of crochet.
