Material Notes

Cotton Print from IKEA [ I’m pretty sure this is home decor fabric] but it is light weight and soft on the skin so it can work for apparel wear. Watch the washing as to not dull the color on this fabulous print.
I used these awesome owl button on the sleeve treatment and I got them from Joann’s, they don’t sell them at my store anymore so if you see any grab them for me!

    Super cute! I have this pattern and never new what to do with it, this is perfect. Since the style is so prim and proper it’s perfect to team it with a fun print. Excellent and I just remembered I don’t know if you watch or have heard of the show Doc Martin? Well in the last episode I watched(Season 7, Episode 7) I was lusting over a dress Louisa wears and it’s exactly the same. Same dress with a really big fun yellow and orange print. It looks awesome! Great Job! Thanks for the inspiration, now I just need to make mine :)

    It’s such a classy pattern! I have always like Leanne Marshall. Yours is so in tune with spring. Your a good mom. My mom would make me dresses when I was little. It really warmns my heart to see you do this. Thanks for sharing!

    PS the owl buttons & necklace are gorgeous!
