The “Owl Bandwagon” Dress
Why do we hold onto awesome fabric? I bought this owl-print fabric on a whim because I had a Groupon that was going to expire at my local fabric store. It felt a little too stiff at first, and I knew I was grabbing onto the owl trend, but I had to do it. I’m so glad I did!
Fabric: Cosmo Textile Owl Print from Brooklyn General Store
Pattern: Colette Patterns Peony. I am a huge fan of Colette. I love their silhouettes. As a busty lady, it’s hard to make clothes that fit me well. This is the first dress I’ve made that I’ve looked at and said, “Yeah! Awesome!”
Notions: Invisible zipper. I added my own H&M belt as an accessory.
Time to complete: About 7 hours
First worn: To work
Wear again? Yes, I already have! I get so many compliments on it.
Total price: $25, using a Groupon at the fabric store, plus $18 for the pattern (which I plan on using over. And over. And over!)
And here’s a close-up of the owls so you can admire them.
