I thought, if I want this fabric to work, I'm going to need a GREAT pattern. I went through some of the reviews at Patternreview.com for dresses, and saw that one of my favorite bloggers- Beth at http://www.sunnygalstudio.blogspot.com/ had made Maggy London's Butterick 5455 SEVEN times.
The pockets blend in so well with the print, that you can't see them unless you are up close.
Here they are from the inside:
This pattern is definitely a keeper, and the pink peacock fabric design has grown on me. I think it's a great late summer/early fall dress.
How about you? Any fabric buyer's remorse in your past?
