I made the shirt the same way as last year's blue calico that matched Genevieve's. The kitties are so adorably quaint and the colors so whimsical that I couldn't even add lavender rick-rack or black hand-stitching; the kitties carried the day.
The fabric has been in my stash for years, waiting for the right little girl in the summer. The pleasure I feel in this shirt on this girl in this summer reinforces all my saving tendencies. What if all my saved stuff could blossom in this way after years?
