it was love at first sight.
there it lay, the thai silk in the lightest shade of pink possible, amongst the racks of other beautiful dynamic, vibrant colors. the moment I saw it I could imagine it being made into a garment – a baby pink jubah. aah. what a beauty. now pink is not my favourite color but that fabric was just simply irresistable.
Do I add some sequins? Lace perhaps? Or maybe just make a plain one & wear a patterned hijab? Ribbons to the edges?
then i walked around and saw another love. an opaque pink chiffon-like material with little butterflies all over! complete! that imagination above quickly turned into another one whereby this pink chiffon with butterflies would be layered on the baby pink silk and made into, yes, another jubah. simply gorgeous.
It was so very tempting to buy those materials but fortunately my conscience was telling me that I still had heaps of materials at home yet to be sewn! Yikes!
Now excuse me while I go imagine some more. :D
