Marc Jacobs Houndstooth is Project Runway Simplicity Sewing Pattern 1776

Have you ever loved a fabric?
Well with this Marc Jabobs houndstooth it was love at first sight.
It is no secret that I tend to love a good houndstooth case in point the POP Collection.


So that may have started the spark. But I also love the blue which is out of my confort zone; I tend to not wear blue. Somehow I found it conforting that I could actually wear this blue because of the black combo.

So I purchased 3 1/2 yards of the fabric (I found it at Fabric Mart in the super sale section some time ago, I also love a good deal). When it arrived it felt wonderful, thick and lux and our love became tactile!
So the first thing I whipped up was Simplicity Project Runway 1776.

Misses' lined A-line dress has square neckline, 3/4 sleeves. I decided to add an exposed zip because it was in my stash. I liked the solid black banded neckline but overall I thought the dress would work because it was all about my loved fabric.
