I love people who make me laugh. Who doesn't?
It isn't very hard to make me crack a smile. In fact, I used to get in trouble in the workplace for laughing too much (I'm really not made for a cubicle, am I?). My laugh tends to change too. It will be contagious one day, and absolutely awful the next. 90% of the time, it is guttural. I laugh big and loud, and you can recognize it immediately. People that hold in their laughter baffle me. Why hold in all that energy when all it wants to do is come out?
As you can probably tell by now, today's outfit reflects the following Audrey Hepburn quote:
I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.
While shopping at Jo-ann for fleece fabric a few months ago, I came across this pattern. It stopped me in my tracks. I had no idea what I wanted to do with it, but I had to have it. I had no idea if I would ever find it again (it is not available on their website). So I bought it and it sat in my closet for 8 long months. I just couldn't figure out what to make where you could really appreciate the pattern. A tote? A pillow? Eh...
Then I came across this wonderful tutorial by Elle Apparel. Since I was using a basic cotton, the silhouette of this particular kimono is very structured, which I love. It shows off the print so much better that way. Basically, I am a walking wall of Audrey Hepburn art!

If you haven't already heard, my Kickstarter campaign will be funding more posts like this, mainly to promote the fabrics that I have designed and currently sell on Spoonflower.com. This fabric is not an original of mine, but you will see my illustrated fabrics come to life very soon. Once fundraising is complete, the Cozy Reverie blog will go through a major revamp. You can join the family as well! There are a ton of great rewards being offered, and I'm sure you'll find something you'd love.
