New dress! Many of today's new batch of dresses (5 in total that I finished sewing this morning) looked very similar, all using the same fabric or the same print, so I printed on three of them today before wearing. This one I put on as soon as it was sewn, though, and I like how it has the big white area on the front that didn't get printed, down at the end of the fabric.
This dress (and one of the others that got printed today) contains the recycled remains of skirt #7 in its bodice and pockets. That skirt is the one I'll miss the least out of all of them.
What material(s) are you using for the dresses? It looks like cotton. Are you going to explore other dress materials?

No, I'm planning to keep it simple. So far I've used light-and medium-weight cotton muslins and a few secondhand bedsheets (I usually go for the small floral prints and then print over them). I want to stick with plain and utilitarian fabric so that the focus is on the printing and what's happening on the surface of the garments, and not the fashioning of how they're made.
