So the lovely Sara from Sew Sweetness sent me some Floral Asphalt in Voile from her new fabric line, Jungle Avenue.
I've never used voile before (apart from curtain voile which is completely different!) and I was amazed at how something so soft and buttery feeling, so lightweight could still be 100% cotton and sturdy enough to cut and sew with...without it being a pain in the neck! Let me tell you, this voile achieves all of that and more besides, the pattern printed on it is kinda cute too!
Here's what I made with it, a maternity Washi dress using the same edits as when I made my curtain Washi dress. I just made the nursing version with hidden invisible zip under the neckline bow.

I love everything about this dress, it's comfortable, keeps me cool and is so very soft to wear! The print is way brighter than anything I'd usually wear, but I love that it pushed me out of my comfort zone and I got so many compliments the first time I wore it, I'm sold on the fun, bright print!!
Without even trying I managed to get a big hot pink flower front and centre of my bump...how's that for hidden talent?
|Yes, I do feel wide, why do you ask?|
Oh, and in closing, here's how this dress makes me feel.....CRAZY!!
What would you be able to make with my scraps? They're not massive but there's some not too bad sized pieces.
