The third Historical Sew Fortnightly Challenge is Pink.
However, for reasons unknown to me, it has tweaked my rebellious side. I am making open, French drawers from a historically accurate pattern.
They will most definitely be pink. With soft, lacy ruffles trimming the hems. But as I was roaming through my fabric stash and dithering something hit a nerve and my decision was instantaneous.
I don’t want to conform with this project.
Oh sure, the pattern is period-correct. It’s beautiful, looks quite comfy and is just what I want. However, I am expecting a lot of people will less than pleased with my fabric choice: a very modern print honoring a very old weave. And done in shades of pink that will…uh…surprise and amaze. Or repulse and disgust. We shall see.
