Inspired by India Flint, 'a whorld wanderer', I decided to have a go at making a dress in her zero wastage method! Here's some pix of the work in progress.
I used India's pattern from her blog 'the prophet of bloom'
Here's pocket detail which is the bit cut out for the neck.
and here's the dress - only tacked together so far. Has potential, nice and comfy for working in. The idea is to use this for a tester as it was an old sheet. Then work out how to make it out of a very lovely piece of silk from my fabric chest, which could then be dyed in 'India's' method of not using chemical/synthetic adjuncts. might be a while before the finished item appears here..
