Next sewing project

This is a Liberty print I got in a sale early last year, and have been humming and hahing about what to use it for ever since. However since designing the Angora Hearts cardigan for (See picture on blog) it all fell into place. This fabric actually inspired the colours for the hearts cardigan and likewise the cardigan has inspired the choice of project for the fabric.

I am going to make a 1950's dress with a fitted bodice with wide straps and a full skirt and wear it with the cardigan. I have found a vintage Vogue pattern from 1952 that I'm going to use. The cardigan is quite cropped so the dress will mean no gaps or belly showing problems. Will give you a progress report on this one soon.
