my purple streak
the past couple days were loaded with all kinds of shades of purple and pink, those colours are definitely not my favorites but i caught myself in the moment. the moment of thinking about this coloure shades and then especially as i bunched the wildflowers from yesterdays bike ride (yes i did stop, put my bike with hitched trailer a side and picked flowers on the way side...), i became keenly aware how purple they are and how much i loved them, specially the wild columbines.
and then within two days thea's new dress with hood is ready for the lady. she has been wearing it since the moment i allowed her (it was sitting for about 24hours without being hemmed...). and she is so very happy about the ability to choose which fabric she want's to wear outside. of course the hood makes it to her favorite dress to match her older brothers...
the dress seems a bit long, though we both don't mind, as she will grow into it in no time. the pattern is sprout, from make it perfect, the fabric is "camden fair" from alexander henry's collection. the very nice voile i found in my stash, is so soft and just the best thing to wear to the skin.
