I love spotting fabric I have purchased made up as RTW clothing!
First, let’s have a reminder of the fabric. It’s the slightly-psychedelic-is-that-photo-even-in-focus? ikat style print.
On Friday I spotted this little baby in the Wellington Women magazine (Winter 2012):
This dress is from Madame Fancy Pants and is called the Leah Dress. MFP is in Cuba Street right here in Wellington so it’s not such a huge surprise to see a fabric I bought in Wellington made up as a dress by an independent clothing store.
It’s not the style I envisioned for this fabric and I would definitely have centred the print (of course I don’t have to worry about wastage over multiple dresses!) but it’s fun to see someone elses take on using a fabric.
Have you ever spotted a fabric you’ve purchased in a magazine or in a shop already made up as a RTW item?
Did it change how you were going to use the fabric?
