Oops! I Did it Again!

Ooo...I am so excited. An amazing Maggy London Garden Print Linen was posted at Textile Studio a few weeks ago and I have been stalking it ever since. I would gaze at it longingly for hours, dreaming of what our life together would be like. The dreams we could fulfill, the time spent in each other's company. C'mon folks, you know what I'm talking about. I know I'm not the only one that has a rich fantasy life that revolves around fabric.

Anyhow, Marsha (the little temptress), must have known about my unrequited love. There it was, in the Thursday Special this week...my heart's desire...begging to come home with me. So, I invited 2 yards over for dinner and who knows what else (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). Here it is, my latest passion:
I'm not absolutely sure into what I will turn this fabric. On my short list, I see it as view A of Vogue 7511 (although I will be ditching the bow at the neck). Then it can be worn twice as often, sometimes as a dress, other times as a coat.

Shannon, love this pattern, maybe you could rethink the bow...they are shoing up in some of the fall fashion shows...and always in anything Chanel. Maybe not as big as the one shown...or maybe relocate it to the bodice seam.

I hope you and you new "heart's desire" have a happy future together!!!
