Grid-Print Decisions

IMG_3892I recently bought this crepe fabric as part of my first ever online fabric order!

I got this and three other fabrics from¬†Remnant Kings, and I’ll definitely be shopping on their website¬†again. I’ve always been wary of buying fabrics online because you don’t get the opportunity to physically see and feel the fabric before you buy it, so you don’t know exactly what you’re getting. That wasn’t a problem at all though and I was really pleased with all the fabrics in my delivery. The materials were all true to their description online, both texture and colour-wise. It’s almost a bit dangerous though, knowing how easy it is now to buy fabric just whenever I fancy…

So this grid-print fabric is everywhere at the moment and I now have two metres of the stuff – so what to make?! These are my options:

1.

This top from Topshop has a sheer back, which I can replicate using the boxy top pattern of Simplicity 1366.

These shorts are also part of the Topshop set. I could use Simplicity 1371 to make a similar pair with a higher waist.

Or, back to my old favourite, the shift dress!

Would it be bad if I made them all? Possibly grid-print overkill…
