Rick said that to Ilsa, remembering the way she dressed on the day the Germans invaded Paris. I have a free day today, I think I should clean the house but instead I’ll throw myself into a Dress in a Day project. I haven’t pushed myself to do one for a while. This dress has played in my mind for several years- it was one of my first pattern buys when I got into vintage patterns. It’s French, from just before the invasion. I made the skirt a few times before.
Can you believe the fabric match? I’ve had this almost as long as the pattern. It’s a quilting weight cotton. My mind is full of recent current events from the last week, you know I’m a news junkie. A project will help me focus and think. So I’m brewing some coffee, ignoring the messy house for once and watching Casablanca while I make a dress.
