Vogue 1241

This is a Kay Unger designer pattern and I love it. I also love the fabric that I used to make this dress. What I don't love is the marriage of the pattern and the fabric. I wanted a look similar to the dress on the pattern envelope which I think really shows off the beautiful lines of this dress as shown below. The repeat on that fabric is very large and the repeat on mine is very small. I still love the dress and will enjoy wearing it but I learned a valuable lesson for the next time I want a specific result from my fabric choice.
