    I love the prints you choose. I am a big print person too :). I have this pattern and now I have proof that it was a cute style.

      haha, me neither, I didn’t know it until I cut the fabric and found the words “Original Hawaiian print by…” on its edge, but it may be a fake one, because it cost only a dollar per yard at wholesale store in Tokyo :)
