As a forgotten fragrance, a souvenir that suddenly come back , the evanescent smell of childhood, at the corner of an department store ….
That’s exactly the feeling that struck me when I came across this fabric with poetics lite pink designs!
I suddenly remembered one of my favorite dress that I wore when I was 5 / 6 years old and whose old picture still hang in my parent’s living room!
Of course, I bought a coupon. A big coupon in order to sew a little sundress with, and a biiiig skirt (like the one in my childhood)!
… except that now I’m at the dawn of a new decade (and not the dozens!)! ^^

I took the time to sew a backless dress for “Mademoiselle”, and lucky Aline, I even managed to finish it (I say this because I have a dozen projects waiting for an elastic or a hem since 6 months …)!
Backless dress, home made pattern, fabric “Sherbet Pips” by Aneela Hoey for Moda (made in Japan!), hot pink velvet ribbon.
Now when I see Aline in this little dress, I remember every time my childhood skirt… it is a sweet and cozy feeling…
And just for fun … 25 years ago!
