Fabric Mart Challenge #2

Our challenge this week to create a DVF-inspired wrap dress. She has so many beautiful dresses. I have a couple patterns to choose from but I’ve settled on a BWOF from 2006 that has a great wrap dress pattern in it. They’ll be looking at all the details, seaming, fit, etc.



This is my inspiration picture. It’s leopard! It’s the idol herself! And I just flat love it. And really, I’d like any excuse to use an animal print.


Kristin did end up winning the last contest. Her transformation from skirt to cute dress really was amazing. Apparently we tied for first, but reader votes pushed the judges her way. It’s okay, I’m not going to yell at you. Little secret? I voted for her too!!!!

I’ll post my finished garment here on Wednesday. :)
