No, it's not September yet... but you know I can't shut up, so...
Whoops - updating (5:13 PM) I buried the lead!
|My daughter did this self-portrait last week. Yes, she's still 13. No, I'm not kidding...|
Sometimes, I think about just how many colors there are in the world, and how awesome the whole spectrum is, and I can't just choose one favorite, so, sometimes I just flip to a new favorite...

I posted about this fabric some time ago, when my kids initially fell in love with it.
|Leftover peach-skin screamin' green lining from a client project some months ago.|
Then it became...
Something my daughter greeted with a gasp, when she saw it on the dress form.
A new shirt for her journey to high school.
This is something that starts right here. Today. Not influenced by anyone else in particular- just a feeling in the air. No one else's idea.
It was a long time in the making. A shirt for my daughter that sat around as four rectangles. For a long time.
|The shirt. Note: Shown here on a misses dress form, which has a lower bust than she does (explains the high dart).|
Pattern: self-drafted/draped, but the shape of the sleeves was inspired by this.
|And then she danced in it!|
