I'm doing the Walk-Away dress.
The likelyhood of me whipping this puppy up in a morning and walking away in it for a 'luncheon' are slim, but I'm excited regardless!
I've been cruising eBay and Esty for about a week now, and I just keep coming back to this pattern. I flippen love it. And although it's a tad dramatic, I think I can actually wear it in my actual life, due in part to my probable fabric choice:
Red Carolina Chambray from Fabric.com. I LOVE this stuff! It's so delicious and soft and heavy and flowy all in one. :) I think it'll be perfect, and kind of take the drama of the dress down a notch. I have 3 yards and I hope it'll be enough... I don't have the physical pattern yet, so I don't know the yardage. I'm a bit hazy too on what I should use for the binding. There's so much of it! I'm thinking maybe like an ivory floral like so:
Any thoughts or suggestions would be much obliged!
Happy sewing to you all!
