Caroline Dress – inspired by Sleep No More

Last night I dreamt I went to McKittrick again…
…except in my snazzy new dress!
Caroline
I’d wanted to make a 1940s dress ever since my first Sleep No More escapade.
The vicarious excitement from my friend’s recent trip set the motors of my tiny sewing machine in motion.

With permission to incorporate the McKittrick pineapples, I designed and printed my very first fabric through Spoonflower.

I present to you: Miss Caroline.

I’ll be donning this for my second visit to the McKittrick in May.
I’m looking forward to all the things I apparently missed.
I really want a 1-on-1 experience but those seem wretchedly rare.
Either way, I’ll be bloody bold and resolute.

Maybe I will pay fortune a visit.
I hear she has favorites.

*Edit: Apparently they aren’t pineapples, according to scortchedthesnake, they’re thistle, whoops ^^;

*Edit again: Fabric now available on Spoonflower, with approval {Link}

      I’m super honored that my fabric is couch worthy 😄
      I’ll email Sleep No More and see if it’s ok that I sell it.
      Will get back to you on this!

      I’m sorry. SNM emailed me back and I don’t have permission to sell this.
      Hope you find another awesome fabric for your couch. 🙂
