.....Guess who's ordering more fabric on line without ordering a swatch first? OOOH! Pick me! Pick me! If you pick me, then you will be RIGHT! No, I do not learn from my mistakes. I am so stubborn.
And while I didn't seem to be able to find the time to order swatches, I did find plenty time fritter away pouring over fabric at Purl Soho. I knew is was bad when I was reading design*sponge and I could pick out the fabric designer in the "Live In: Last of the Mohicans" post without peeking. (It's Windham. Naturally.)
I found a few little numbers that I like and have narrowed it down to three. I would love your input (What, you haven't voted enough this week?). I have no even begin to consider the contrasting fabric for the sash. More fabric fun to be had! In no particular order, for your consideration:
OPTION 1: Green Webs and Butterflies.
And I'm shocked! S.H.O.C.K.E.D. at how much I like this fabric. It's so stinking cute and the color is great. I'm a littler nervous that I'm drawn to it simply because it looks so similar to the color in the dress photo, but I think it will be striking. Decisions!!!!
OPTION 2: Purple Grain.
I don't know if I necessarily love this fabric for this project, but I do love this fabric. A dress will be made in this some day. Do you think it should be today? I really feel like I can't stop at a dress though. I would love a shirt in this, too. And pajamas. And maybe even a couch.
OPTION 3: Dogwood in Lake.
It's a pretty heavy lean towards this fabric...but don't pick it because it's safe! I'm a little worried it's too safe, but it would be the most perfect color combination to enter the Mouras household: Matt's favorite green plus navy. I've been told navy makes my eyes pop, and who doesn't love that?
So, go forth and help me make a decision.
