This was the only material in big enough a piece I had at home. I plan to dye it a dark grey or deep blue shade.
There are only two pattern pieces, the sleeves, upper back an front piece are one piece, and the lower back is another.
I do plan to copy the draping on the skirt-bit. I've tried on fabulous Vivienne Westwood-dresses with a very similar drape all over them, I want one! I even bought one on sale that I returned, it wasn't perfect for me (a bit too wide, a bit too short and a nice but not very discreet = wearable pink colour) and still quite expensive, so I was sensible, cried a tear and parted with it...
Odd. When I look at the pictures of my dress, I quite like that it's black and white and not darker. I may have to wait a bit and actually wear it a few times before dying it.
I'll keep you posted on that one!
