Sorry if my regular readers are sick of seeing me make this dress (#7) but the Rollerskate dress is just too cute, easy, and perfect for fun/modern fabrics.
It's no secret that I love Lizzy House fabrics and her style of fabrics is a perfect compromise between my daughter and I. If Charlotte had her way, everything she wore would be plastered with licensed characters. If I had my way- she'd only wear Anna Maria Horner and other bright florals....
I also used another fun novelty fabric and other stash favorites to make a Sew-Together bag for a friend. I wish I had the stamina to make these for all of my friends who sew- it's just the perfect bag for all your little tools and notions!
I still need to make one for myself but it will happen eventually. I am going to finally start ordering my zippers on etsy (zipit?) and stop paying the high prices at Joann's.
So what about you- do you like using novelty fabrics? Are they hard to resist or do you stick to basics/blenders and more "grown up" fabrics?
