Whilst I was watching YouTube I came across a lovely lady, Shelly from SewShelly who made a Coco dress by Tilly and the Buttons out of scuba fabric. She personally really likes the fabric and said how easy it was to work with. I thought I would give it a go as Shelly’s Coco looked great.
I bought a beautiful blue and floral print from Fabric Styles, I love the print and the fabric washed well. It is a bit spongey in texture with a slightly silky feel on the print side, it’s really hard to describe if you have never felt it before. I found scuba really easy to handle and easy to work with, i’m just not sure on the texture.
There are some beautiful prints out there and I wished I liked the fabric more. I have only worn the dress once, it wasn’t very breathable and I felt a bit sweaty. I don’t like the feel of it on my skin which is a shame as I think I could make some lovely garments with it.
Oh well, you can’t win them all……
