I love accidental outfits! The result of being in the zone, letting your imagination be free, and just creating what makes you feel good. This dress is a prime example of that, an accidental outfit. I’ve had this fabric for about a while but, obviously, I’m just now using it. I tend to do that a lot, store fabrics until I get inspired to use them! lol I started playing around with the fabric and got the idea to do this simple yet “different” kind of dress. The front is not pleated but the back is, the hem is uneven, and the belt only goes around the front. This fabric is colorful, playful, and I love the mix of polka dots and stripes. I don’t know if I like the dress or the fabric more! lol
I got this fabric from Hancock Fabrics last year and I just have to take a moment to say I’m really sad they are going out of business! I recall Hancock fabrics being one of the first fabric stores I ever visited, I worked at a Hancock Fabrics in Georgia throughout college and I learned so much about sewing working there. I don’t think I would love sewing as much as I do had I not worked there and been around so many other talented, creative, people always willing to share their sewing knowledge. On the bright side that just means now I’ll have to take regular trips to New York to go fabric shopping!
