Polka Dots and Pattern Trails

Coco Dress SixThis is my sixth Coco dress, so I’ll keep it brief! The polka dot ponte is from Stone Fabrics. It’s fairly coarse in texture, I don’t think it’s my favourite ponte ever, but I’ll still wear this dress to death. The awesome pocket fabric was a gift from DIY Couture when she was having a clear out. Thanks, Rosie!

It’s such fascinating fabric! I had to use a press cloth to get the iron over those raised polka dots. I don’t think this is really made for dressmaking. I’d use it for accessories, cushion covers or outerwear. Any suggestions? I have a load of this stuff.

In other news, my non-too-subtle hints prompted Cat to track down three more patterns on the Pattern Trail. She may have had to negotiate cobwebs!

    You ask for suggestions as you have a lot of the fabric left over. Well, how about a new bed for Ella. I do like the dress though.

    That Style pattern looks particularly cute – congrats again to Cat!

  5. Polka dots are fab. I like the pattern with all the green dresses. x

  6. doubly delightful dottiness in such a sparkling palette. Mmmm. And Ella is the perfectly matching accessory. (I’m sure she’d insist that you and the dress are the accessories and, you know, maybe she’d be right.)

    The pocket fabric looks like the stuff you see on the soles of slippers. Does it have any texture to it?
