My goal for the OAL projects was to try to use some of my fabric from my stash. My yarn stash is almost all leftovers or stuff for design work, but my fabric stash is embarrassingly large for how little I sew. A lot of it is really old, too. I bought this floral fabric when I was a sophomore in high school and never used it. I’m fairly certain that it’s just polyester which isn’t my favorite material, but I still love the print. It manages to combine two of my favorite colors in a really fun way. It’s probably not the best fabric choice ever, but I decided to use it for my dress. Because I already have an orange Myrna, I ordered a skein of Miss Babs Yowza in Vlad’s, and it nicely picks up the darker shade of red that outlines the flowers.
