Now that's a dress - a Mamu Katrin

It's no secret I love big, bright, bold colors in my knit fabrics. Finding prints like this is a little challenging, but when I do come across one, I feel like I've won the lottery. I found this print a few months ago and just stared at it for a few seconds, not quite believing my good fortune. And then I snapped it up so fast my movements were a blur.

With such a large scale print, however, I needed to be careful of the pattern. I didn't want anything with too many pieces, so I chose the Mamu Katrin pattern, one I've done many times. Once you get over the fact that it runs too wide, it's a terrific pattern - certainly very easy. I was able to whip this up in just a few hours. And if anybody wants some, I do have a few more yards left of the Floral Splash fabric!

Pattern: Mamu Katrin
Fabric: Floral Splash from Bamblue Fabrics


  1. Really lovely dress. It's a flattering shape but looks so comfortable, too.

  2. Thanks Joy! It is really comfy - I even wore it on a nature walk with my kids yesterday.
