I love the fragrance of lilacs!! I found this fabric at Joann's, with the plan to sew up my first oliver + s pattern but then I decided I really wanted a picture of a lilac dress by a lot of lilacs, before they all blow away, so I made a dress for Ansley using Simplicity 4927; except now I'm feeling kind of bad about making a dress for Ansley's friend b/c I don't love this pattern on Ansley. It sews up easy enough and it's easy to vary but it kind of looks like a nightgown. It probably doesn't help that Ansley was not cooperative at all the day we took pictures (Mother's Day)- you can see those tears in her eyes. The light was beautiful and perfect, the lilacs were gorgeous and she wouldn't look at the camera. I thought it was a bit strange that the background color of the fabric was black, until we shot some pictures when the sun was almost set. . . .
Funny and creepy when you zoom in, no?
