I love this dress. Has anyone seen a similar fabric? I like the colours and I like the small scale of the print. A different print with a similar overall effect would be fine. I'd prefer a cotton but rayon is okay. Preferably not chiffon or georgette because of the extra work.

I think I'll use Butterick 4978 for the pattern, but if you have other suggestions for that let me know!

Thanks,

Kathleen

Good choice of pattern for that dress! I love the fabric too, but have not seen it. I don't know if you fabric shop online, but there are several good online options such as fabric.com, fashion fabrics club.com, fabric of vision.com and more. I'm sure others will comment and give you suggestions. Good luck and I hope you find this fabulous fabric!

It looks like it may be a rayon batik. Cute dress, don't know a specific pattern but should not be too difficult to find - search the big 4, then hit the independents.

For the pattern, I think now-OOP M5974 could be used though the neckline seems a little low.

I know there is another Kate Knock-Off besides the recent Vogue one but I can't remember the number...

As for the fabric, some options:

brown blue abstract print poly ity knit 60W



The full view is less detailed and gives that scrambled look of the original, I think.

Oh, that's pretty.

Just what I need, one more pattern.

But life is short and Simplicity is on sale at Hancocks. :)

It's just fabric; we can out-think it.
