I had such a hard time choosing from all of the beautiful Aviary 2 fabrics by Joel Dewberry that I broke down and bought enough to make two dresses. If I'd had an unlimited budget I would have bought some of each design and color combo. It's gorgeous, high-quality fabric that's even prettier in real life than in the pictures.
The first dress will feature Damask in Granite with Lodge Lattice in Vintage Yellow at the waistband. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but the yellows match perfectly and are even more vibrant in person.
The second will feature Sparrows in Plum and a solid-colored waistband, probably in a matching plum. The only way I can justify spending so much on designer fabric for this is if I buy the solid fabric at Jo-Ann Fabrics using a 40% off coupon. Gotta save those pennies somewhere!
To further my excitement, Sara at Sew Sweetness has already made three dresses for herself, each even better than the last. If this isn't enough to inspire me I don't know what will:
It's not too late to join in the sew along so if you're interested visit Sew Sweetness for all of the details and to get a great discount on the pattern and your fabric. Wish me luck!
