*Need* Inspiration

100% Rayon Challis, just over 3 yards.
Drapes well, light/med weight.
The colors are very vivid.

Stumped on what kind of dress to make...


(or maybe I shouldn't make anything with this hideous fabric, lol! All feedback welcome!!)

I love it! I really think it needs to be a summer maxi dress, or something along those lines. You certainly couldn't wear that to the office. lol

Maybe a sassy short skirt or a long skirt for you and your daughter.. Or a maxi dress for vacation. Or a coverup for the beach or pool. You'll think of something, you always do.

A cute halter with thin straps would be pretty. Maybe a full, knee length skirt. Such pretty fabric:)

A halter dress would take down the impact of the material a bit as you would have a lot of skin showing at the shoulder. What about a skirt with a solid color border band at the bottom? Then you would have a contrast between ultra low-key, the solid, and high volume, the print.

Very pretty! I know you have something in mind :)

I agree with the halter style maximum dress suggestion.

I say a caftan for lounging. McCall's 5628 (now out of print) would be perfect if you have it?!

Something long with enough ease to move around. I love happy colors!

how about a semi fitted princess aline with a slight cowl front and a deep cowl back. If this doesn't appeal to you, I will gladly take the fabric off your hands and make it for me. Mwah hah hah!

Yikes!! Now I have even more ideas!! I'm going to try to photoshop the pattern styles suggested with the fabric and se what I come up with. I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes the fabric!!

Definitely a fun casual summer dress! I'd also vote for the halter maxi.

I agree. A maxi with a solid insert maybe at the waist of one of the colours just to give the eyes a respite.

How about something along the lines of simplicity 2554 crossing view "c" with view "b" maybe with sideslits in a tunic length and a tie obi belt and a head wrap.
This would look great with lots of other pieces and might look fine for work too!
