There has been something on my mind about the style of dress I want to make with the blue and white striped fabric I showed you yesterday, but I couldn't quite put my finger what the inspiration behind it was.
Then when I finally found time to read Teen Vogue today the realization slapped me across the face.
Men's pajamas! the striped are just larger than classic pajama fabric. I have been thinking of soft gathers and pleats, flowing and comfy, but with men's wear inspired details to refine it just a bit. Just like the cozy pajamas that your father wears. Now that I have realized what my inspiration is I can focus on the design, instead of trying to think of exactly what I am reminded of by the fabric.
