My sister saw this fabric in a market in Amsterdam.
She told me about it.
She sent me some with a note saying ‘You’re the only person in the world who could rock this fabric.’
Maybe she is a little generous but Hello??’ I <3 Jesus with gold shiny Holy Spirit Doves’?? Yes Please!
I used a pattern that was an off-cast from one of my mama’s friends.
Without the belt I look a bit like I am 7 months pregnant or how I still look 5 months after giving birth.
I love this fabric – I often think about making clothes that say stuff about the real ‘who I am’ more than just the ‘I love clothes and dressing up’ part of who I am.
I do love Jesus, very much. He is the source of who I really am and who I am becoming. At 34 I’m at that happy stage of my life where I feel entirely at home with this and I don’t feel like I need to make excuses or try to convince people that loving Jesus doesn’t make me weird, or crazy or deluded or brainless. Point is I find meaning and joy in this sometimes difficult-to-explain relationship and I’m happy to wear that on a black chiffon, 80s-esque printed dress with pink stilettos (even if I did slip over in the ice in them!).
