Cherries And Summer, They Just Go Together

I am working on a custom dress right now for one of my sweet neighbors. She is being whisked away to Paris with her husband for the 32nd wedding anniversary. How wonderfully romantic is that? No, I have never been to Paris, but thanks to her my dress will now go! The day she was over at my house getting her measurements taken we were strumming through some cherry prints, and came across the fabric below. She went with another print by Michael Miller in Fruit Basket, but after she left I kept looking at this retro kitchen like print. It kind of reminded me of a grandma tablecloth, and with that I decided I must have it in my shop. After the fabric arrived I could not decide whether to use it for women's clothes or children's. I thought for my personal taste it might be a bit much for a dress, so I sewed it up into a pretty flounce dress. 







  I also sewed up a red cap sleeve Tee (which to me looks like a modest tank top), and listed it in my shop as well. I am really excited that I can now sew knits with ease and professional seams. I guess that is one advantage of getting older...mad skills...


So, do you think wearing fruits and veggies on your clothes is a good idea or nay?
