My next thought was what other fabric do I have that I can use to make this dress. After pulling out two other double knit fabrics, I decided that neither one of those were what I wanted to use. Digging further through my stash I found I had enough black double knit to use with the geranium double knit.
The challenge was how best to use the two fabrics. Because I had already cut out several pieces from the original fabric and I determined I had enough black fabric to cut two back pieces, it was obvious what I had to do. I had enough of the original fabric to cut out one back piece but not enough for two. I really did not want to have two different colors for the back.
I have completed the front unit and the back unit and you can see the results below. Both pieces have been pinned to Alma Marie.
