I did a little sewing today. I really didn't like the results. However, I love this Joel Dewberry fabric, the color doesn't show clearly, the background is somewhere between chartreuse and lime green, and the grain print is sort of a burnt sienna. Okay, I am not describing it that great either.
I tried a pattern that was made for knit. I decided to enlarge it a little since cotton wouldn't give like knit. I'm afraid I went way overboard! It is too gathered. I'm debating cutting it down and trying again, but I so don't want to do that! I pulled most of the gathers to the back for this picture and it still doesn't look great. My other pattern is cut on the bias. That probably makes things hang better too. I just didn't think this fabric would look right on the bias. Now, I wish I'd given it a try!
