Dickensian Ladies Day dress in Paisley

Sometimes you find a fabric that makes the dress.  As I remember it, the client sent me shopping with something entirely different in mind but I had purchased a 1/4 yard of this fabric to show her because a swatch just was not going to communicate much about the yardage.  We looked at all the swatches together but we both loved this very busy fabric.  Boarder prints are so hard to find and when you do find them they offer such rich possibilities.
