Bold Prints

There’s just something about spring that makes me yearn to wear bold colourful prints.

Even if said prints aren’t very spring-like.

I’m on the lookout for floral and pastel prints, and other soft colourful prints which are more spring-like.

On my last trip to Target, I got a dress from the Liberty of London for Target collection; a pink Garla print shift dress, I’m waiting for a sunny clear spring day to wear it someplace happy.

This print reminds me of Marimekko prints; apparently I’m not alone because I’ve been asked twice (on separate occasions) if it’s a Marimekko print.

Sadly, it’s not.

I’m going by the fabric store right after I click ‘publish’, my mom surprised me with a skirt from pieces of fabric leftover from another sewing project.

The skirt needs a zipper hence the trip to the fabric store.

While I’m there, I’ll be looking floral print fabrics to make a 50’s style full skirt dress.

I think I mentioned that I’m taking a dressmaking class next month. I’m very excited!
