I have always been inspired by the simplicity and playfulness of children’s clothing, particularly from the 1950s and 1960s. Working with a classic pinafore pattern, I added a Peter Pan collar to sweeten up the dress a bit and even lined the pockets with the same rose bud cotton/rayon challis print, purchased at B&J Fabrics. Lately, I’ve also been experimenting with mixing different prints together in unexpected ways. I was excited to finally cut into this striped wool that I picked up at Britex Fabrics, which I have been holding on to forever.
