It's a gorgeous light cotton jersey, I repeat GORGEOUS! Plus, it's at a far better price than my local fabric stores.


I'm thinking a wrap / faux wrap top or dress, and I'm leaning towards the M5974 Palmer/Pletsch wrap dress:


What do you think? Does it whisper anything else to you?

Get some more and make a wrap to go with it and a cute nitegown!
Where does your supply come from?

oops! I've just realised my post is out on its own, I meant it to be under the 'seduced' thread! such a newbie!

Anyway, they are good ideas - I just might do that!
I ordered it from an online store, tissufabrics.co.uk. A woman I work with ordered fabric from them before and was very happy, so I figured I'd give them a shot. I ordered 5 metres, as it was only 2.99 a metre (about $4.80 USD / 3.75 euro). I need to build my stash!

I'd say summer maxi dress, but probably you don't have as much use for those in Ireland as we do here in the hot sticky gross US summers.
