While I continue to wait for my pink pin dot fabric, I was thinking about this beautiful Wildwood Flower dress.

Originally, I was planning on using Sandi Henderson’s beautiful Spring Dahlia fabric from my stash:

While it’s not a faithful reproduction of the inspiration fabric, I liked the look of it a lot. Then, I found this:


An absolutely stunning piece that’s just perfect. I love it!!! However, there are a couple of problems:

1. The seller only had 1 yard + 2 fat quarters; not enough for a dress.
2. It’s vintage.

Still, how could I pass this up? It’s too gorgeous. The dilemma I have now is do I use the fabulous vintage fabric to make a skirt version of the dress or do I use the Spring Dahlia fabric to make the dress?

Also, if anyone has seen this vintage print before and knows it’s name or manufacturer, I’d love to know. If I can find more of it, that would be fantastic!
