a little dress

Way back in the mists of time (well, November 2007) I bought a hat, a beautiful orange spotty hat. I bought it from a lovely woman called Sue on Etsy. I had only just opened my shop on Etsy and Sue and I emailled back and forth a bit, she was very sweet and encouraging and she cheered me on as I started to have some success with Flower Press. Sue is a very talented seamstress - I think she could make anything - but eventually she decided to concentrate on her wonderful hats, in a new shop called aptly McHats where she sells hats and patterns made from her fantastic original designs.

Back then, in November 2007, I talked to her about the dreams I had to make my own fabric. I told her that when I did it would be great if she would sew something from it, combine our talents! It seemed like a lovely dream.

Fast forward to 2010 and its very wonderful to me that that dream has been fulfilled. One of the first things I did when I got my bolts of shiny new fabric was to send some to Sue. And now she has sewn this beautiful little dress for me, using RickRack fabric in Aqua blue :-)
