MTL: Mint Floral Border Dress
Sometimes I think it's my responsibility to create a MTL that improves on an original inspiration. For today's MTL, I found an inspiration that happens to be in a drab mint green color that would so not work with many skin tones. The dress is sort of just meh. However, I believe that it's got the right idea with regard to its use of border print. There's potential to this Dorothy Perkins dress that can be unlocked with these slight changes.
- Fabric: Floralicious Double Border Stripe Flowers Multi ($8.48/yard from Fabric.com)
- Pattern: Simplicity 2180
- Use the border print edge for the waistband and neckline, while using the sparser flowers for the bodice.
