My fabric stash is quite small, due mostly to space constraints, but I'm a big believer in buying what you love when you see it, even if you don't have a project in mind.
This fabric inspired me as soon as I saw it at Purl a while ago, but it took some time to decide what it should be. It's a double-faced gauze very similar to the Nani Iro quality Mari has been stitching with.
Because it's a very light-weight, drapey fabric, I thought it needed a simple line and not much in the way of seaming. A yellow polka dot cotton from the stash made up the perfect bias tape, and away we go! A-line sheath dress, good for really hot, humid summer weather. Tsia baptised it with a popsicle today, so we'll call it the Popsicle Dress. I think it's the perfect dress for chasing down an ice cream truck in the middle of a hot city.
Fortunately there will be plenty of time for such activities later, after a little more cool weather at the lake. I'm excited to see it with her yellow sandals, too.
