Over the years, I’ve accumulated a lot of things like toy and clothing patterns, and partially done projects of my own, that I’ve thought about making for my own children, should I have them someday. These make me feel inspired. I’ve saved a lot of things from my own childhood, not just out of nostalgia, but out of a desire to share them with my own kids. These dresses have that kind of nostalgic feel to them. They remind me of my own childhood for some reason.
There used to be an April Cornell store near here, and I loved to go in and study all the clever combinations of fabrics she has. I’m glad to see her clothing, accessories, and home decor are available online.
