Sunday Stash #76

This week Sunday Stash is being hosted by Melissa of Ms MidgeSo you can head over there to make your link up. Coincidentally, her linky was the most visited post last week.

Next week Sunday Stash will be hosted by Heidi of Fabric Mutt.

Gumnut Fabric

A few weeks ago I found this gorgeous May Gibbs' Gumnut Baby fabric at Spotlight. At $20 per metre it was not cheap but with a $10 off voucher it was less painful.

It is so gorgeous. I knew that my daughter would love a dress made out of it. I just did not have the right pattern to do it justice.

Then Ms Midge posted about a summer dress pattern that she had purchased online. She had made up two versions of the dress for her two daughters. 

The sizing for the youngest was a little tight and so I offered to buy the dress for my daughter as Fran is a small size 5. It arrived in the post recently and Fran was excited to open it up and try it on.

I might keep this fabric tucked away for a couple more summers though. The pattern is called the Gatsby Dress and just $6.90 USD will buy you a downloadable PDF.

I am linking up to Sunday Stash over at Ms Midge. See you there.
