I find myself drawn to fabrics that remind me of when I was little... a favorite dress I had, a curtain, a bedspread. The fabrics I am sewing with now are some of those fabrics. Especially the red one. It is a fabric that I would save nearly forever waiting for just the right thing to use it on. But I didn't have to wait that long, because this fabric is just right for Chloe, and I am making her a new summer top from it.
Several things are motivating me to get this done... One, the fabric, of course. Two, the fun sewing challenge, and three... well, I was planning on making the same top for Chessa, and I won't know what size I want to make until I finish this first one. Even though now I think I will be making her a dress instead, still similar style though, and this dress will be her birthday dress, which is in less than two weeks now, so better go get back to sewing!
