My older daughter picked out this fabric -
...and wanted me to make this dress -
I want the fabric to want to be this dress, because this dress is very easy to make. But the fabric doesn't want to be this dress. It wants to be this -
It's an adorable dress that wraps in the back. (You can buy it from Amoretti for $136!) It would be much more difficult to make, but you can't fight the fabric. However, my daughter latched onto a skirt from the same website that looks like this -
The fabric likes that design, too. So, we'll see if I can figure it out. Now, my younger daughter thinks I am crazy. "Please, mommy, stop saying that fabric talks to you." I can't wait to see what talks to her.
