Or making a toile so that I can turn that glorious designer laminated tweed into a coat.
But this digital border print is messing with my mind. It really needs to be sewn!
This lovely fabric is from EmmaOneSock. Linda describes it as a “new technology polyester woven that mimics the qualities of silk, and this one is very much like a silk charmeuse. It’s a drapey dress weight, elegant, opaque, and a beautiful quality alternative to silk! The print is a beautiful tree grove scene with sunset colors: periwinkle blue, grassy green, indigo, french roast, rosy pink, etc. with a silvery pale gray background”. Each panel is 73 cm (.8 yards) long. The panels are printed across the fabric which is 150 cm (60 inches) wide. I have 2 panels. So plenty for a summer dress.
I could go with a very simple trapeze dress like this :

Tessuti have done something similar with one of their delightful panel prints
Or this more glamorous Matthew Williamson designer pattern
I like this dress too but I may not have enough fabric, so it might end up sleeveless. And I do love those sleeves.

This baby doll dress is very cute, but perhaps works because of its rich black yoke and delicate lace.

So, I’m leaning towards the Matthew Williamson dress.
What do you think? What other patterns would work for this fabric?
