Here is the other dress I finished making last week! I had a six yard length of this Dutch/African wax print fabric that I bought while studying in London. I remember admiring the different wax print patterns every time I went into the fabric shop down the road from my student housing. One day I finally gave in and chose one to bring home with me to the US. The fabric had been folded waiting to become a dress for years until last week when I finally pulled it out and got to work. I really love the result! With the full circle skirt, it is quite a fun dress to wear!
I was turning heads today while I was out (fabric shopping...) and several people asked me about the fabric. African wax prints like this one, which is actually a Dutch copy/version, are always full of beautiful colors. I'll talk about this type of fabric a bit more tomorrow in a dedicated post!
