The new dress challenge

So - considering I spent 3 years of my life studying fashion design and pattern cutting I really felt it was time to put this to the test as I have been cheating a little recently with pre-printed patterns...

My latest love is 50's style dresses, like this one:
My challenge is to cut the pattern myself from scratch and make it in the black and white colourway of the following Alexander Henry fabric (maybe) I might bottle out and go for a safe option but I think it could be quite funny.....

I see the potential hilarity - this print is awesome. Do it! Do it!! :)
Thanks for the comment btw!

+ cheers for indulging in the simpler hobbies in life that you crave ;)

I love the dress idea. I can also see that fabric being used for a very swish panelled skirt! Remember to take pics of when you are done. x

I like the skirt idea too! Might be somewhat easier than the dress idea, although now I am defeating my own objectives.....
