Please Help Find This Fabric

January 28, 2012


Ever since Mena (Sew Weekly) posted this I have been looking to recreated this dress.   I finally have the right pattern (Simplicity 4640) but I’m still not able to find a fabric I like. It should be turquoise and orange and if possible floral . I love the orange and turquoise color combo.



  1. I love turq and orange too! but is a hard combo to find. Looking around there is a lot of pale blue and red, so getting some combo of that might be nice.
    I’m loving this modern flower print http://www.gonetoearth.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=36_98&products_id=808
    and if you want to push the boat out, Liberty has this beauty http://www.liberty.co.uk/fcp/product/Liberty/NEW-SEASON-FABRICS/Ellie-Ruth-C-Tana-Lawn-Liberty-Art-Fabrics/70981
