Summer Babar

Added Apr 6, 2010

Denver, Colorado...






I’m just getting my Spring/Summer clothes out now. This is a dress I made last summer using a vintage Babar flat sheet I scored at Goodwill. I have fond memories of having Babar stories read to me as a child and was so pleased to have found this print. The pattern is a vintage Butterick 5448.

Material Notes

Vintage Babar flat sheet.

    I’m so jealous! But so pleased! I am so much cheerier than I was a moment ago. This pattern is so cute- not to mention the fabric. I wish I had a Babar quote to post.

    this pattern and print together are so adorable! the sheet looks to be in very good shape; what a great find! reminds me of a piece I did with a Little Mermaid sheet which was one of my favorites :)

    Major Babar nostalgia rush! We had two Babar towels when I was little—gotta love textiles with storybook characters on them. I like the pattern you chose, too.
