Mood Fabrics has delivered in sooooo many ways with this Retro Floral Cotton Jersey. I have been wanting to make a wrap dress for some time now but I just could not decide on what fabric I should use. In July I won the #MoodMadeSwimsuit17 contest and I knew I could use that gift card to buy the PERFECT fabric to make that wrap dress I had been wanting. The problem was I had nooo idea where to begin. The only thing I DID know was that Mood Designer Fabrics had to have IT! I decided that I wanted to go outside of my comfort zone and buy some floral print fabric.
Since I knew that I wanted to make a wrap dress I found different patterns that I could use and decided on Vogue 9251. I then realized I could narrow my fabric search down to the recommended types of fabrics found on the pattern envelope…this took me one step closer to discovering the MOST beautiful floral print. I went to the search bar and typed in jersey and then selected that filter “floral” and that narrowed my search down to 94 fabrics. I decided that wasn’t too many to filter through until something “spoke to me”.
I didn’t make it very far…third page to be exact…and there she was, this GORGEOUS floral print in NOT one but TWO color combinations. I immediately checked the pattern envelope once more for the yardage requirement and ordered a little extra because I loved it so much! Oh! It was also ONLY $9.99/yd, a deal I could NOT pass up!
I am so pleased with the way this wrap dress turned out and I will be purchasing the other color combination found here to make view A of V9251. Also, did I mention this cotton jersey is so soft on the skin and drapes beautifully, as you can see!

Here’s what I used:
- Fabric 3.5 yds Retro White/Pea/Mustard/Blue Floral Cotton Jersey
- Vogue 9251 View B
- Lining 1 yd ( Chocolate Brown Bemberg Viscose Lining – pairs perfectly for the pocket lining)
I am excited to see all the beautiful wrap dresses made with this beautiful retro floral cotton jersey! Remember you got options because Mood Fabrics was wise and made double the awesomeness in two color combinations! Here are all the other amazing fabrics I bought from Mood with my winnings!
