I love colour, I know how to work with texture, but prints? Not so much lately. When I look at my stash the solids rule.
See? Some plaids, but I feel these looked better on the bolt than on me. Just not that inspired by them.
So when I felt strangely attracted to a flowery fabric last week I did some soul searching. Been reading some wild sewing blogs? Influenced by magazines? Or perhaps it was my husband's remark about me making 'safe choices' in my sewing lately? Touché! I already noticed that myself.
Back to the fabric store and this flowery fabric. To buy or not to buy?
It's not that often I find a fabric that speaks to me like this one did, so of course, it went with me.
Ever since I've been torn between 'Awesome fabric!' and 'What was I thinking? Was I low on sugar when I bought this?'
Only one way to find out. Cut it! Make it into a Moneta dress!
When I saw this week's theme for the Project Sewn sew along I decided now is the time to grab my scissors and attack those giant flowers!
