I have to give it some thought, but a fake wrap dress from Burda would be cute!
American Vogue featured a leopard print tie-neck blouse - that has my vote! It'd be perfect tucked into a tweedy skirt for winter... if it gets that cold in Oz.
Cindy is right a wrap dress woulod be so classy
I agree, wrap up dress would be perfect.
Such gorgeous and special fabric. I can't really offer any advice because my fashion /sewing experience and knowledge rarely gets beyond 'casual'. I am, however, seeking your advice. You recommended using a 'cordonnay' needle to topstitch denim. Is this a typo? Did you mean 'corduroy'? If so, does this differ from a denim needle? Do I just use the biggest needle available on the Spotlight shelves in Cairns?
A fellow animal print lover! I do have to restrain myself from buying any except those I absolutely love.
Beautiful fabric and agree with the others a wrap dress would be lovely.
I've been agonising over the leopard print I bought, too. My first thought was a shirtmaker dress, too and I even imagined it styled with wooden accessories and natural leather shoes to complete the whole safari look. I thought that was too cliched, so I let it sit for a few days. Last night I was reading through a list of BWOF patterns I need to trace and decided on BWOF 08-2008-128 dress. It's in the Parisian chic section and made in a black (?) wool I think. I decided I liked the idea of styling a simple stylish dress with an unexpected print. I actually think that a silk would drape far more nicely than my cotton. The dress has a grosgrain belt, but you could use a belt in any of the colours. My fabric is predominantly black, so I had planned black accessories, but brown would go equally well. So long as we don't wear them at the same time.
I was going to say wrap front dress too!! That would look so lovely
Any top you make from that fabric would be lovely! Yum! I currently have a love affair with McCall's 5522 but you may not want the ruffle. However the pattern has the advantage of coming in different cup sizes!
what a gorgeous fabric. It looks like it has a lovely hand and drape. Me, i'd sew one of those take 1, make 4 blouses from Burda a while back which they made up into white shirts. I'd make the long tunic shirt version and wear it with pants.
I'm sure it will be lovely. I've bought silk lining fabric from there before and it was great. McCalls 5977 is a very simple top pattern that sews up nicely. It does run a bit big though.
