So I went to Mood Fabrics last Friday, determined to get white eyelet, and then I saw beautiful very light pink eyelet fabric. I immediately thought of the two apple trees in front of our house here, in New York.
I love this extremely gentle pink color...
The image of my childhood, my mom, the apple blossom eyelet fabric - like pieces of a beautiful puzzle - all it lacked was a simple frame. So, I chose a very basic pattern from June 2010 issue of Burda magazine (#148).
I used an invisible zipper instead of a keyhole opening - to make it more comfortable for my daughter to put it on.
I also underlined it with white batiste, light enough for hot summer days.
and here is the full shot of the dress.
She is happy!
