Fun with Foliage May 1-31 2021

Rules: Sew absolutely anything at all as long as the fabric includes foliage (ie leaves) in the print.
This can be a floral which also has leaves, but can also be a print just of leaves (my absolute favourite!)

Timeframe: Construction starts on 1st May and the item must be completed by 31st May.

In all of my stash - which is extensive!! - I can't call to mind any foliage fabric  :headbang:
I will have a good old rootle but if not ....Ahh, lightbulb moment, I think I have just recalled some. Watch this space for searching success.
So many beers, so little time. 🍻

I know I have nothing like this. I reckon you have to be careful with prints past certain age - they can be ageing but did see something somewhere - now where was it and did I keep the page.........

I was surprised that of the half dozen floral prints I have only one has what I would call foliage.

Efemera’s entry

The pattern is In The Sun Dress by Dress your Body.
I used the narrow hem foot to hem the flounce and the gathering foot for the gathers.
I added side pockets and a false hem to get the maximum length.
