This day in history: Mary Poppins premiered in 1964! The music from this film gets better and better every time I listen to it. Julie Andrews is my freakin' hero. Oh, and Dick Van Dyke as Bert is my forever crush.
A few months ago, I illustrated items that reminded me of Mary Poppins just for fun. Just seeing them in black and white made for a instant pattern for fabric. Up they went onto my Spoonflower shop and they have been a favorite on there ever since. Naturally, I had to draw myself into my favorite scene of the film. STEP IN TIME!

I constructed this dress out of the performance fabric option. It is wonderfully comfortable, but MAN is it hard to sew. Are there special machines for these? Sheesh! With that said, I just adore how it came out and can't get over how awesome the "doodles" show up on the knit. I've got to keep this doodle trend going.
Have you used this fabric pattern for your projects?
