Dress Up

I was given some really fun cream and pink toile by a friend who no longer had any use for it.  She had originally bought it for a large project, so I came home with yards and yards of the stuff.

I had been thinking about doing some painting on printed fabric at the time and the yards of pink toile provided the perfect opportunity to experiment and see what I could make of it.

Since the toile had a fun design of children and sheep frolicking in the countryside, I went with a graphic, geometric design - to contrast with the sweetness of the color and fabric.

While I have no images of the fabric before I put it to use, here are a couple of a slim and simple pencil skirt I made from it.
