I bought the fabric way last fall intending to make my granddaughter a dress. Now, at last, I'm beginning the process of making that dress. The fabric is the sweetest cotton, printed with a rather shabby chic pattern of faded roses in pink and lavender - perfect for spring. So last night I copied off the pattern pieces and cut the fabric.
This afternoon I assembled the pieces, pleated the fabric, and now it's being blocked.
In rummaging through my threads I found this skein of Gloriana silk that I think will complement the fabric perfectly.
I can't wait to get started smocking!
