As temperatures begin to reach the 100s here in Central Texas, I am reminded that summer is upon us. I thought I would kick off "Flashback Friday" with a super fun summer knit that I made for Little Miss (my niece) a couple of years ago. This project reminds me of how far I have come in just 2 years. I can only take half credit for this project, as I didn't even know what a bobbin was going in. My Mom graciously attached the skirt to the bodice for me. This was one of three Summerlin dresses I made for Little Miss.
I actually got this fabric prior to my Heather Ross obsession. Who knew that in just two summers I would be scouring the Internet trying to find this out of print fabric collection (Mendocino). Not too long ago, I saw an ebay listing for ONE yard of this print (Seahorses in Aqua) going for $40+.
