There is always that piece of fabric that you wonder, why did I buy this, and for what. For me this would be that fabric. I have had it awhile, and bought it because it was on sale on an online fabric store, I think Fabricmart. I think I may have paid $3.00 per yard. When it arrived, was disappointed when I realized it was a ribbed knit but it was not my intention to get a fabric with ribbing, my fault for not paying attention to the description when I purchased it. When I took it out of the box, I just threw it on my fabric shelf and never looked at it again.
Then a group that I am in on Facebook had a 7 day sewing challenge where you had to make a garment every day for 7 days. I knew when I said I would join this challenge that in my mind it was for the purpose of fabric stash busting and to get some things off my inspiration board. So I dived right in. I decided on Simplicity’s Cynthia Crowley 2054, because it could be a quickie project that I could serge up quickly. So I grabbed my not so happy with ribbed knit fabric, and wallah, this dress came out amazingly to my surprise. Even when I was cutting it out I didn't pay attention to the design in the fabric, and both the front and back are cut on the fold. I did not intentionally mean for the main design to float down the front of the dress st does.
