It reminded me of my grandmother. I remember her showing up at my house in the mid-1980s, at around 75 years of age, wearing a pair of loud cabbage-rose print pants; her comment was, "Aren't these pants fun?" So, when I saw this fabric, I thought of my Grammy's "fun" pants, and decided I should have a dress in a "fun" print; thus, this fabric followed me home from my trip to Philly with GMarie.
Happily, there's enough for a "fun" summer dress, too. Not that I wear "fun" prints much, but this one made me smile, and it is a pretty pink, after all!
And since I had plenty of this plum colored knit, and it's so nice and soft, it became the view I've made before. (I was wearing this top in turquoise the day I laid out the fabric and pattern pieces, and my dearly beloved complimented me on it. I love it when he compliments me, after all these decades.)
Although this fabric was marked as being 1.5 yards, it was really around 3 yards (hooray for when people make measurement errors in my favor!), and there's enough for a sun dress, if the weather ever decides to stay warm. We'll revisit that idea in June, I think.
