Here is another project from this fabric group. I think I have three so far, two posted and one not quite finished.
The paint drip skirt has such an interesting pattern, I am leaving it as is lengthwise.
I just removed the waistband (and saved). I decided to use that top band of fabric as the bodice.
Using this pattern piece, I cut out the arm holes on each side. It is way too wide but such a soft fabric, I am going to gather it up the right width with a few sewn lines and let it be a puffy top.
Before I sewed the top, I decided to make it a puffy skirt too. I did that by flipping it inside out, sewing the underskirt to the overskirt and then turning it back right side out. Then I serged the top arm holes, flipped the serged edges to the inside. The only exposed sewn parts were along the neck, which I serged and then turned down to run a ribbon through.
The tiger print matches the traces of brown that are in the paint drips. I will say this fabric was like sewing cheesecloth....not fun. But this will be light and airy for spring...if it ever comes.
