Wool is one of my favorite fabrics, especially for children. It has the amazing ability to simply let go of dirt - the rest of my family's clothing seems to cling to it. Laundry is my nemesis. No matter how much or how little time and money I invest in doing laundry, stains run rampant in our household.
So in choosing the fabric for a winter dress for my almost two-year-old who loves to frolic in the dirt, wool was the perfect choice. This was an antique cut of fabric that I found (where else) in my one of my mom's old trunks.
