My usual dress pattern, but this time with belt loops.

Love love love the fabric! It's from IndianStores on Etsy, block printed indian cotton.

    This is beautiful. What pattern is your usual pattern?

    This is gorgeous! Can I ask: how did you pretreat the fabric? I've had my eye on this fabric shop and the block print fabric in particular but don't want to have to dryclean another garment. Thank you!

    Thank you! I followed the instructions on Merchant and mills page (it's the same fabric there) and washed it in a washing machine on 40C with a bit of salt in the machine. Worked great! At least I can't tell any difference from before washing. It still smells a little bit of indigo so I will probably wash the dress with similiar colours a couple of time to be sure.

    Thanks, Clara! That is very helpful. I think I may soak it in saltwater beforehand then since I use laundromat machines. I think that should do the trick perhaps. Happy sewing!
