I have always liked this fabric.
It used to be a jumper.
I didn't want to use it as a jumper anymore.
So I cut the bottom of it off and made curtains for a friend.
But I still had the bodice.
It has been hanging around for a week or so and I've been eyeballing it.
thinking thinking thinking
Well, now it's a very washable pot-holder.
It was an old Conversation Piece jumper.
They don't make them anymore.
That means the demand for modest jumpers went down.
There is a store in Galveston called Conversation Pieces.
The owner started making clothes in her own home, now she owns two stores. (maybe 3?)
She said, people don't want clothes like this anymore.
She used quilt fabric and the cost was too much for what women were willing to pay for them.
I loved the style, the fabric and the fun buttons.
Too bad there weren't more women that thought so.
I've had many of the dresses and jumpers through the years.
Some new, some old, some marked down, some as gifts.
I loved them all.
It's cause I'm FRUMPY.
So, call me FRUMPY.
It's a compliment.
When it's all been said and done....
