Happy Valentine's Day

I love custom orders. I just did two that were SO much fun. It feels good to be able to move on to something else too. I've also been catching some glimpses of fabrics that want to be together. The result? Farbenmix Oona with AH City Park and a nice vintage cotton. The tiny deer applique was traced and resized.

My first instinct was to make it reversible. After reflecting on my limited supply of vintage fabric, I went with just a facing. This is a size three, well a 98/104, and it fits my girl fine over a shirt and it will make a great sundress. Gotta love versatility. Here's a close up of little deer. I'm working on more kids hats now, with an "Old Fashioned" feel. More on that forthcoming...
