Oh for those warm days of spring and the warmer days of summer. I spotted this stunning Indian paisley madras fabric cast aside in a clearance bin at a Joann's late last summer/early fall. As I continued to walk down the aisles of the sales section, I spotted the prettiest floral cotton lawn in vibrant hues of purple, rose, and red. Though the prints were different, the fabrics were kindred spirits in terms of tone and weight.
My little girl has a rich golden caramel skin tone and I looked at the mix of colors and knew that they had to be made into something for her. It was certainly not the usual soft palette chosen for a little girl but my little girl is quite diva-esque. It just felt right. I took the fabrics home, they were both in small supply so whatever I created would have to be well thought out in terms of fabric usage.
Now keep in mind, that the time that I purchased the fabric was right around the time that the seasons change here in San Diego. I ended up putting the half finished garment away. Then about a week ago, I came across it while trying to organize my stash. I suddenly decided to finish it. A little while on the sewing machine, a bit of time with the serger and....
Voila!!!! Quite chic for my little flower child.
