This blog has definitely been neglected as of late. I can’t say exactly why - I suppose it is mostly because I am just not as motivated to turn on the computer these days. I have been fairly productive with my creative pursuits, though.
Which means I have a huge backlog of photos to get through, and plenty more finished projects to photograph.
This quilting cotton was purchased at JoAnn Fabrics at the same time I picked up the poppy print for this skirt and this dress. I love both of the designs, and this particular cotton fabric just gets better and better the more it is laundered. I cut right into the poppy print, but the birds were tucked away, waiting for the perfect pattern to come along.
When I decided that I really wanted to find an appropriate pattern for this fabric, Butterick 6318 was not the first one that came to mind. And technically, I did not have enough yardage - but I was not about to let that stop me.
And I am really glad I went for it, because I love this dress! It has had a lot of wear this year. It may be rather simple, but sometimes that is just what is needed.
