About 15 years ago I was making a birthday gift for a friend's little girl: a lavender gingham dress with puffed sleeves and a full skirt... when I remembered the cloth in the linen closet. I couldn't stop thinking about how pretty it would be as the collar on that dress. So.... it was quickly cut (quick is less painful when cutting up something beautiful) and the dress ended up with a gorgeous large round collar. The dress turned out prettier than it would have with my original design and my friend's little girl adored the dress! It was worn for her birthday and for Easter and many, many Sundays. The linen scraps were saved, of course, or their would be no post today!
