What's my favorite fall color? Why, that would be orange. Who am I kidding...I like orange anytime of year.
The other day I was at my local fabric store getting a few things I need for another upcoming project when I spied something that just screamed my name. It was cute. It was kind of "retro" looking. It was fall-ish, it had orange. I had to have it.
I carried it around in my cart for awhile trying to think of a way to justify buying it. What did I need it for? Hmmmm. Well, luckily my daughter has grown quite a bit over the past 6 months, so a lot of her stuff from last fall/winter are going to be too short. So I bought some, along with another cute coordination fabric, and brought it home to make something for her.
Luckily, she gave her "Princess Picky Stamp of Approval" when I showed it to her.
And here is the cuteness:
I just love it! The colors, the birds, all of it. Here it is with the other fabric I chose to go with it.
So what exactly am I making with these? Well, you'll just have to come back and find out!
UPDATE!!!! Here's the finished product! I picked up this cute Simplicity pattern awhile back when they had a 5 for $5 sale at my local fabric shop.
It came out a little big, but she's at an awkward inbetween size right now. Since I made this while she was at school, I didn't have her around to make any drastic alterations.
[Side note: this is her new favorite hairdo...she calls it her "hunny buns." ]
I just love the bodice and sleeves on this dress.
And then my kids wanted a picture together....and I was happy to oblige.
