I was trolling Style.com the other day and here's what I saw in the European street style slide show.

I know those prints so well because I use them to make boxer shorts. If anybody's wondering it's an 50112042504.1e' target='_blank'>Alexander Henry print.

I think it's a cute, fun little dress.

Great find! That quilting cotton made a sweet dress, although it looks like it's going to pop off any second. LOL Like how the dress itself sort of copied the clothing on the fabric, too.

That look on her face screams: "I'm keeping my top up by using the sheer force of my facial muscles."

Too funny! You know she can't raise her arms without a serious wardrobe malfunction.

:wow:

I made a dress out of a cowgirl Alexander Henry pin-up girl print just a couple months ago... review is right here. Sorry about the ridiculous iPad.

This may be the first time I've been ahead of anything remotely trendy.

Excuse me while I go find my jaw. It seems to have dropped to the floor.

I just saw your dress, and it is F-A-B! I love it. I have that fabric too, well I had it. I've wanted to make a dress from one of those prints myself but I can't find the right look for me, eventually, I suppose.

I made pj pants for my 61-year old dad out of the Alexander Henry fabric. I'm going to send him this pic. He will be so excited to be fashionable.

Interesting, this dress seems to have a lot of structure going on, maybe to make up for the lack of substance to the quilt cotton? Something to remember when making a dress with this fabric.
