Settle in darlings, lets have some brunch (because I know we all slept in) and discuss what kind of patterns work with challis. The more flowing the better, though not all challis is created equally, as we read in the last post. Some of it is heavier and can take a bit more structure than others. Here are few of my pairings:
I have several fabrics I want to make Simplicity 1880 in, AND Sunni did a great sew-a-long last year which you can read about here.
This is a one way fabric and I just LOVE the border flowers, which will be the bottom of the skirt. You probably recognize this as Colette's Chantilly. I've made this before, so I won't have quite as much work to do to get it to fit. Other pattern ideas:
Tasia's Cambie Pattern
Vogue 8827, for a great work dress, particularly version B.
Cynthia Rowley 1872
SO those are my picks! What have you decided on? Let me know in the comments!
