I don't know if you remember that I bought a downie cover last summer with zebras on it? I decided I wouldn't wear it with the white background so I dyed it blue - here's the post explaining that.
Then, after much thought, I realised I probably wasn't brave enough to wear zebras myself but I thought Joanna might. I was going to make her another McCall's 6696 dress but decided I wasn't prepared to deal with the problems of zebras slap-bang on top of nippular areas on such a big print! That post is here.
Anyway, after making my version of the Felicity dress last month, I thought it would be the perfect pattern to use with the zebras - no darts on the bodice part so no zebras would be cut up their middles (or bottoms!) by darts! I am soooooooo pleased with the way it all turned out.
The bodice is meant to be gathered but, like my own version, I pleated it instead.
Here are the zebras in her pockets.
And in the other pocket.
Best thing - Joanna loves it!
This was again made from a duvet cover and, as it was King sized, I managed to get the dress out of one side of the cover so there's the whole of the other side waiting to be used. I wonder if I dare make myself a zebra dress too? Joanna and I would need to consult with each other so we didn't both wear them on the same day but that wouldn't be hard. I wonder if I dare?
