I only had two meters of this amazing print so I had to work really hard to get the pattern placement right. I wanted to keep the centre front/back orange and yellow, but play with the front bodice panels and side pieces by making them blue (to flatter the autumnal nesting!). I dithered on the leaf placement on the bodice and sleeves and the pattern matching on the back seam made it the longest cutting process to date! Those logo repeats near the selvedges are largely to blame! Overall I am super smitten and I am visually assaulting my work colleagues with Autumn as we speak (leaf bouquet not included) 🍁swipe to see front and back 👉🏻 #autumn #changingseasons #africanwaxprint #isew @colettepatterns #ruedress

I think the dress is fabulous, and I also think you are the queen of pattern matching!

I love it! And I'm shocked that your leaves are turning at the same time as ours in Canada!

Beautiful! I had to admit defeat with my last attempt at pattern matching African wax. After 4 hours I realised that even the repeats didn't match!
