Today my earlier decision about one of several dress patterns just went out the window. I put all those patterns back in the Vogue dress pattern file box and pulled out this one.
The fabric on the left is a black/white Italian wool tweed from Mood. The fabric on the right is lace look double knit from Gorgeous Fabrics. I think the mix of fabric type will work together.
I have cut out the pattern pieces and began the pin fitting test to determine any adjustments besides my usual ones.
I am also trying to determine the main versus contrast fabric to use. I have more of the double knit fabric compared to the other. I have enough of each to use either way. The back is not color blocked. Updates later.
