I found this sweet stripe up in the mountains near Lake Gregory in Crestline. I loved it and immediately knew I wanted to make something for Lorna. Does that ever happen to you? You see a fabric, know that you love it and you know the perfect person for it… you just don’t know quite what it’ll look like.
That was this fabric. I spent all morning thinking about it. I looked at every pattern I own, every website I could think of, and then I pulled out the big guns. I closed my eyes, and tried to imagine Lorna spinning around talking to the imaginary friend of the day. What was she wearing?
Immediately this dress came to mind. I took an old pair of Kevin’s jeans and cut out a “jumper top.” I have a skirt, pants, top… the works planned. It’s going to be adorkable. So, today I cut out the appliques and did the embroidery. Isn’t it darling?
