Billie Jean in red

Another dress sample post... i know, i know.. you may possibly be over it, BUT i had to share this Billie Jean dress sample that i made. Its the  the Dress 1 version of the sewing pattern: the wiggle dress. This was one of the first Billie Jean dress samples i made to test the actual design,wearability, comfort etc etc  and to be honest this is the dress that made me fall in love with the design and decide to release and share  the Billie Jean sewing pattern!
 I just love it !
 This  absolutely gorgeous cotton Hawaiian print, thwhen i saw it i  totally couldn't resist buying up big. I also made a few others bits and pieces with the fabric, but  i held onto the majority of it, knowing it needed just the right dress/project before i would use it . That perfect project was,  Dress 1 of the Billie Jean sewing pattern, a wiggle dress. It  seemed absolutely perfect for this fabric, totally a marriage made in heaven! This is the kind of fabric that  i envisaged  Billie Jean sewing pattern, been made up  in... ALL  THE TIME!
 Both dress versions of the pattern would suit bright and bold fabrics, but the wiggle dress especially loves them. They really show off the form fitting  dress design, and really accentuate the neckline design of the dress.
                   Winnie wanted to say hello!
I would highly recommend if you looking for a va va voom kinda of dress for your wardrobe, grab the Billie Jean sewing pattern, pick Dress 1, the wiggle dress,  go shopping for some fab bold, colourful statement type  fabric and get sewing! I guarantee you will turn heads if you do and have a gorgeous dress that will have you channelling a sexy 50's bombshell attitude!

I plan on doing a blog post on fabric choices for both Billie Jean's and what suits best, so stay tuned.
