Post by: Sexie_Leopard on January 17, 2005 10:02:30 AM
Hi, can anyone help me find a dress pattern for this fabric i have. 

Here's a pic (this is a closeup):



Here's a pic (the long way):



The material is a black moleskin with embroidered flowers in rows.  I fell in love w/ this fabric, and only at $3 a yard in the clearance racks at Joann's.  But i need help finding a dress pattern.  I have 3 yards of this fabric.

I'd be interested in vintage patterns also, i love this: http://store.sewingtoday.com/cgi-bin/voguepatterns/shop.cgi?s.item.V7571=x&TI=20003&pageNum=6

Is it 45"w or 54/60"w?  Here's some that might lend themselves well:

My personal fave would be this Ann Sui view A (B could work too): http://store.sewingtoday.com/cgi-bin/voguepatterns/shop.cgi?s.item.V2820=x&TI=20004&pageNum=1

Second fave would be this two piecer (top A skirt H--if you're fabric is 54/60"):  http://store.sewingtoday.com/cgi-bin/voguepatterns/shop.cgi?s.item.V2654=x&TI=20009&pageNum=4
