No such thing.
However, each dress is not without its own set of unique challenges. This one faced the imgainary stash. When I started Friday night, I was sure that this 1/4 yard cut of a Kaffee Fassett print was plenty for the bodice. And that I had tons of lightweight denim left over from El's last dress. No. I barely got one version of the bodice out of the print. There might have been enough fabric for the skirt front but not the back too. Each thing I tried was either just not right or not enough.
Early Saturday morning, I remembered that I had more fabric on the dining room table. (don't ask. I know that's not where it belongs. I was planning to make shirts for myself this summer. But that impulse has passed.) I really like this big floral print - it must be a mix of 70s sheets and Kaffee Fassett. One of my design consultants said it would work OK and that I could do the whole dress out of the one material.
I was able to use one of the bodices that I cut out earlier for the lining. I really like this chicken fabric. I have no idea why. It's leftovers from PJ pants for El. I saw this dress in the Geranium Flickr group and LOVED it.
When it came time to pick buttons, I over-ruled all design consultants and went with the bunny buttons. Even though they really don't go.
Next up? I have an idea of how to use this pattern to make a fancy princess dress. It will (hopefully) be fab.
