Crabs!

Ever since I found this fabric in Nippori fabric district, I had been dying to use it. But sometimes life gets in your way..finally last week I had some spare time to make some new stuff!

Inspiration is from Miu Mui collection, where they used cat prints and bird prints for their clothing.. I'm sure you've seen the photos of their collection somewhere, since it is all over the net!

At first, I was searching for cat print, but could not find anything that's stylish, and not too too quirky. Then I came across these little crabs and took the fabric roll right to the cutting board of the store.

I thought using this fabric all over the dress might be too much, so I used navy blue fabric for the skirt part.

naww the pattern is so cute, I love the little hermit crab, I want to draw one now. Oh and I love the skirt also, I've been looking for a simple navy blue one like that.
