On a recent outing to Portsmouth with Thea and Misa, I fell in love with some Heather Ross Fabric at the Portsmouth Fabric Company. Unicorns and flowers? Yes, please. I didn't even know I liked unicorns.

Two cherished yards have since been converted into another smock using a pattern that has been tested and refined on less precious fabric.
I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to test a pattern with your non-dreamy stuff. If it does not work out, the lessons learned are immeasurable and the disappointment is easy to get over. The garment can and should be donated to charity. If it does work out, super!
This one is a keeper. I have since purchased more Heather Ross fabric -- her aesthetic speaks to me.
