First of all I would like to explain myself why I suddenly Blog in English in stead of Dutch. No I did not move, I'm still living in Belgium :-) but I want to enter my Flip of Straightgrain's Tinny Dress in Frances Suzanne's FLIP this pattern Contest.
After negotiating with my lovely daughter about fabric, she insisted on a fabric with a frog on it. We went to France last week and there she noticed a Frogpool, with lovely green frogs. Now her favourite pet is a frog ... hip hip hooray for me , because finding a fabric with frogs is not so easy. :-)
After going through my fabric stash, I noticed this wonderful fabric I bought at IKEA.
Then I started thinking about the Flip ... just sewing the pattern together is not really Flip-worhty, so I started combining my fabric with solids and came up with a combination of Olive green and the Ludovika fabric I bought at IKEA.
After sketching a few possibilities, I felt simply working with two colors wasn't flipping enough, so I started dividing pattern pieces. And that's how I came up with the last design : a green triangle combined by skirt and bodice.
And that's about how I came to my final result : My green Tinny Flip Frog dress :-)
