Mad props to the girl with the Frida hydrangeas!
And super crazy cool goodness to you for the magical dress! Not only do I likey, I adore!
I have been working up a patchy dress too, only I'm still in the piecing of patches phase at the moment, it could just as easily turn into a quilt though.
A pattern yes please and thank you.

Oh I can't wait for the pattern! The 8 year old little girl can't wait either. Mad props for letting hydrangeas be stuck in her hair! You go girl.

Maureen said...

Beautiful Dress! Same question as so many others -- did you patchwork the fabric?

Fledgling said...

Thanks, friends!

The fabric...no, no, did not patchwork that material myself.

But, yes, some industrious individual DID patch all those squares some 40 years ago, I'd guess. I took it from a thrift store skirt. A skirt, I should mention, created long before the proliferation of tiramisu and guacamole and such things in the United States. There is clearly not an American alive outside of an eating disorders clinic that could have possibly worn that skirt today. So under the rotary cutter with thee! And props to that mad sewist of yore!
