Step 1: Matching fabric to the dress design.
For some projects, the fabric is so amazing that it decides the design for me. But most of the time, I fall in love with a pattern, and wait for the perfect fabric to appear!
I have had this lovely black and white rayon satin for quite some time. Every once in a while I pull it out and try to match it with a pattern only to put it back.
But when I got my hands on this pattern, I knew exactly where to look for my fabric!
