Have you ever fallen in love with a fabric and realised it was sold out everywhere because you were late to the party? Well this gorgeous lavender fabric with mutli-coloured embroidered foliage was that fabric for me. I even remember messaging some other fabric companies to see if it would come in stock again. All were big fat no’s! So when I saw this fabric on the Minerva site I had to do a double take. Was it really the fabric I had lusted for? Was it the one that got away? It was indeed, and I was beside myself. I knew I had to make something incredible with it since I had almost missed out on it!
That brings me to the new pattern from Friday Pattern Company, the Davenport Dress. When I first received the email to test this beauty I squealed in delight. It was as if someone took all the features I had wanted in my dream Summer dress and laid it all out in front of me. I couldn’t believe it. Up until that email came through I was going through all the options in my head and was not satisfied with any of them. So this was truly fate. I knew it was going to be the most magical dress ever with these two combined.
