Hoot, Hoot, the fabric is so cute!

I got this fabric, Zinnia Cathedral by Anna Maria Horner, a few months ago from Angela of Hoot Fabric. She carries some of my favorite fabric designers and lines and introduced me to a few new ones. Her prices are spectacular and she has a HUGE variety. She also has a shop, Polka Dot Birdie, that sells great items that are perfect for gift giving; ipad cases, cases for e- readers, wristlets, and hair bows. Not only is the fabric she sells lovely, but the combinations she uses in her own creations are equally wonderful!

I wasn't quite sure what to do with this fabric and it almost became a set of place mats and napkins until I had worked with the Anna Tunic pattern and now want one in every possible color. Because the dress is lined, it is perfect for fall with the addition of a jacket or cardigan and a pair of boots (unless you are with your husband and he doesn't have the same love for boots you do). This pattern is the perfect marriage of being tailored and loose fitting and is ultimately comfortable... and since my daughter has voiced her disdain for yoga pants, pieces like this are very welcome in my closet.

Want to join me in fabric hoarding? Visit Angela and Hoot Fabrics and for every yard you buy, she is going to gift you with a surprise half yard!
  When paying make sure you write in the comment box that you are from "three in the nest" so she knows to send you the bonus fabric! 
Hurry and snatch some up and let me know what you picked out!

I love the pattern - it's so retro but doesn't look outdated. Supercute!
