A good Leopard print is Hard to Find but I found it! [Simplicity R10035 & Cindy bra pattern from Ohhh Lulu]


#Cindybratake2 The Challenge was to find a leopard print that was not the brown tones we know it to be, after all I had that in my stash already. I wanted to mix it up and find  leopard print that was bolder in color and not the usual. I searched high and low online for a knit in a fun color. I then when back to all my containers of fabric and struck gold! I had just about 2 yards of the green blue leopard print in a knit. Don't even ask me where I got it from or how long I've had it, your guess is as good as mine. I rarely use knits so I must have bought this because of the odd color.

I knew I wanted to use the bra pattern from my previous post to create a dress for Mori and I just picked the first simple skirt pattern to use for he bottom. This skirt pattern is a little on the short side so if you have it in your pattern stash be mindful of that.  The mash up is a easy one, I just added 4 inches to the length of the bra pattern and attached the skirt, easy peasy!

I love this sporty dress, it's prefect for a casual day of fun in the sun!
So the moral of this story is, yes you can use a bra to make a dress 
and leopard comes in different colors!
Until next time peeps.
