I walked past this fabric at the fabric store and knew I had to buy it. I really like a mint green/seafoam green colour but don't actually own anything in that colour. Personally I thought the fabric was nice enough that I didn't need to do anything complicated with it.
This is a favourite fit and shape for a dress. Just simple and lose with a curved hem. The extra panel was added mostly because I love drapey dresses and this gives me the option of making it look drapey.
