Today I had a conversation with a nine-year-old girl I know. This girl is smart. Really smart. She also wears really cute, interesting dresses on a fairly regular basis.
I’d like to offer up this conversation with her as an affirmation of why Eva and I are spending so much time, energy, and money trying to figure out how to print our own patterns (designed by the fabulous Elishka Jepson) instead of going what would have been the much easier route of purchasing fabric from a company’s pre-existing library of patterned fabrics.
Cute, fun, colorful - dare we say, girly - fabrics with pi or dinosaurs or pirates or airplanes on them don’t exist right now. But they will - because we’re making them. And it’s worth it.
