You may have noticed lots of beautiful projects popping up around internet land featuring Frances Newcombe's new line for Art Gallery Fabrics Safari Moon.
I should add at this point that Frances is one of the nicest kindest sweetest people I have come across in quiltblogland. I don't know how many time she has thanked me for sending me her fabulous fabric to make a dress but enough to make me feel like I'm the one being kind and not her which is topsy turvy. Anyway, she has organised a bloghop and my stop on the hop is today. Previous and future posts are all listed out at the end of this post in case you would like to visit those too.
I decided to make a Staple Dress from the beautiful zebra feature print. Apparently, April Rhodes Staple Dress is one of those patterns that suits everyone and I quite fancied the idea of prancing around festooned with zebras. And I had in mind that I would have pockets in the fuchsia print too.
So I cut and I pinned ...
Planned my pockets ...
Picked the perfect shade of Aurifil thread as one does ...
And came up with the cutest little zebra print Staple Dress.
Which made me look like a sack of old potatoes or, as my 12 YO daughter said "you look like you're fifty trying to look like you're 17". So I despondently packaged it up, shipped it off to someone taller and skinnier with their own tv show and hey presto, look how cute it looks on Katy Ginger Monkey!
