My Dream Design...
Literally!!! This is what I saw in my dream last night...exactly! Pretty good dream..Huh? I woke up at 3am after having that dream and instantly went to my sewing room and started creating. No pattern, nothing...I just started cutting and sewing. I used up lots of antique lace and ribbon given to me from my grandmother. I absolutely love it all, but the hat is TDF....I honestly have no idea how I did it as I was just on a mission and I LOVE how it turned out. Believe it or not I was completely out of cream cotton so I scrounged around in the linen closet an found an old futon cover and used that. Of course there was tons of it so I made the hat out of that too. I even made a rose out of leftover scraps from the lavender linen to dress up the hat...talk about using every last little bit of fabric. The dress is a fuller version of your classic drop waist dress and I dressed it up with the antique lace and 6 little pearl buttons down the back. Then of course I couldn't resist I had to make her some fun pantaloons to go with it too.
Pretty good for 6 hours of work... I hope I have another amazing dream like that again soon. It was so much fun to bring it to life from my dream.
