I am craving spring. What else could explain why project #1 is a bright green, short sleeve shirt made out of cotton voile?
The pattern is “Prairie Girl” by Favorite Things, and the fabric is from Anna Maria Horner’s “Little Folks” line of fabric (see link at right under People; she is one of my absolute favorite fabric designers)
I’ll be making the shirt on the left, although depending on how that comes out, I can certainly see myself continuing on to do a dress or two. Needless to say, based on my last post, I will NOT be making the optional “dickie.”
And here’s the fabric:
Yes, that’s my cat, Zoe. Expect frequent cameos by Zoe in this blog. I can’t help myself; it’s genetic. (A side story: for my one year anniversary of quitting smoking, I bought myself a lovely silver Victorian locket. People who know me well asked, “Are you going to put a picture of Nate in it?” People who know me even better asked, “Are you going to put a picture of Zoe in it?” Sorry dear, the cat wins.)
