One day I saw my sweet neighbor Cameron jumping in the courtyard near the lobby of our building. She stopped me in my tracks. Cami so reminded me of Audrey Hepburn jumping in that famous Philippe Halsam photo which was one of the original inspirations for my Bon Vivant fabric collection for Windham.
For that reason I’m calling this the Jump for Joy dress and it the first in my new Bon Vivant children’s clothing line – it will also be a pattern! To make the dress easier to maintain we made the rosette on a brooch pin so that it’s detachable while the rest is being cleaned. Many Thanks to Cameron for inspiring the dress, to Ella Sawtell for sewing it with such grace, and to Ania (Cami’s Mom) for these lovely photos!
