Dare to Dream
This light cotton ruffle skirt is perfect for summer--or cooler temperatures if paired with leggings or tights. To be honest, I fell in LOVE with this material the moment I saw it ... I only hesitated to buy it because I wasn't sure if I could do it justice ... it is such a beautiful China Blue and white--the color of my rice bowls.
I know I'm probably putting the cart before the horse here ... but I just had to share this beautiful fabric even before I get the elastic completely sewn! Want one? Leave me a comment.
When I got the idea for starting "Ruffled Feathers"--the name I'm using for my low-brow company/skirt-making fundraiser--I ran to the store hoping this fabric was still there--and it was ... in limited quantities!
So, why the name "Ruffled Feathers" you ask? Well, I have ruffled more than a few feathers with my passion of orphans, my blogging and my sewing! Especially in this house of ALL boys. (Thank goodness those feathers can be smoothed now and again and reassured that yes, they come first. Silliness to think otherwise! But ruffled they do become at times.) And poor Nolan ... he does have a great sense of humor donning this for me. I promised him I wouldn't show all of him and that I'd get a girl model soon. Thanks Nolan for being so secure with your manhood to put up with this mom's request! :-)
