This little outfit quickly became one of my all-time favorites! I fell in love with the bird fabric while working with it and, I can honestly say, I was very sad to send it to its home in Texas.
Back in March I sponsored a giveaway for a $40 shop credit for Robug Couture at Sippy Cup Chronicles (one of my FAVE blogs!). Helen, the lovely winner and one of my dedicated readers (thanks, Helen!) chose one fabric and was gracious enough to let me choose the rest! I went to my favorite brick-and-mortar fabric store, Fabrics Etc 2, and gawked at the gorgeous fabrics. The WONDERFUL ladies there helped me to pick out the final products.
|The back is open except for a button closure, and the dress is reversible. This top can also be worn as a smock top with a tee-shirt or long sleeve shirt when it gets cooler.|
|This purple, swirly fabric for these Victoria Pantaloons really tie the other two fabrics together. The swirls complement the branches in the dress yet doesn’t compete with the dots.|
I have decided that I have to go buy more fabric because I just love it too much 🙂
It is so much fun doing couture work for others, falling in love with a piece, and then sending off to its home with the hopes that the mama/grandmama/auntie/etc… loves it as much as I do. And, the best part is to hear when the customer likes it too 🙂
Thanks for reading!
