Fabric find: Miyamairi

January 12, 2012 at 7:29 am 3 comments

I came across this fabric panel in one of my favourite fabric haunts and thought it would be perfect for the front of an absolute showstopper of a shift dress! It’s a Michael Miller fabric called ‘Miyamairi’ depicting a Japanese family and Mt Fuji in the background. Not sure when I’ll get the chance to make this one since I’m back at work now (and also in the middle of a Bulgarian owl stamp cushion), but I think a couple of strategically placed darts will mean I can use a fair bit of the fabric. Might have to sacrifice the blue strip at the bottom so that the hemline isn’t too long though…

I love the detail of the big sister fussing with her little sister’s hairpiece, with the little sparrows nearby.
