I have long been a fan of this gorgeous black bird fabric from kokka. On my last 3 visits to Amitie, I had been eyeing off the colourway below, but could never think of a project to use it for. Last week while shopping on Smith Street in Collingwood, I came across the dress above. Even though it was a bit expensive and slightly too small (do I ever learn?) I bought it anyway. It has been hanging on my bedroom door ever since, and each day I look at it lovingly. It's going to pay a visit to the dressmaker this week so I can wear it and breathe at the same time.
The more I looked at the dress, the more I wanted to buy some of the fabric for my own use. I started thinking of ways I could use it, and have decided that I am going to add some smaller journals to my range. So off to Amitie it was to get my stash stocked up!
