Bird-O-Rama Vintage Fabric Repro

While I was browsing the Sears and Roebuck catalogue collection on Ancestry.com I knew I had to make this 1955 birdie fabric a repro priority - how super cool is this?! It was a hard one though, as the printed sample didn't show the full repeat, so I had to get creative and actually design some parts. Still, I'm delighted with how it's turned out - so excited to turn it into a 50s sundress! As usual it'll be available through Spoonflower as soon as I've verified the print colours.

Yeah, so it's a kids' fabric - so what?
