Happy Mother’s Day to Me

I have been wanting to make a few summer dresses for my little girls- the one I already have and the one I’m expecting to arrive in a few months- and Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to place a little fabric order from Superbuzzy, don’t you think?Β  I got this lovely Nani Iro double gauze…

Which at the moment I’m thinking will make sweet little bubble dresses with its unique soft drape…

a delicate Japanese cotton lawn, which reminded me of the new tree leaves budding out against the cloudy spring skies we’ve been having, and is so smooth and fine and just wonderful to the touch (and was on sale!)

and this pretty, pretty woven trim, which literally jumped into my cart of its own accord…

I ordered a plain cream-colored cotton voile that I intended to pair with the beautiful trim.Β  The plan was to make the trim the only star of the garments.Β  But I was surprised by how perfectly the trim coordinates with the chartreuse printed cotton lawn, so I may just have to use them together instead, and add the plain voile to the stash.

The strawberry candy they sent along never made it to the photo shoot, sorry…

My order didn’t arrive in time for the big day, but all the same, what a lovely present to myself- and isn’t the dreaming about future projects one of the best parts of making things?
