If Only I Could Fly

If I could say one thing about this dress, it’s that it really takes me back to my childhood. The layers and the frills and the fullness, make it such a fun dress to play in. Spinning, jumping and running take on a whole new meaning when the the fabric plays along too. When I was a child all my skirts or dresses had be fun to spin in, which basically meant nothing but full circle skirts. For a long time my most cherished item of clothing was a fluorescent green/yellow circle skirt attached to black bicycle shorts. Perfect for spinning. It was also the early nineties, when this kind of get-up was socially acceptable.

Si j’ai une chose à dire sur cette robe, c’est qu’elle me ramène à mon enfance. Les couches et les volants en font une robe très “fun” et amusante. Pirouetter, sauter, et courir prennent une toute nouvelle signification lorsque le tissu répond à tous mes mouvements. Quand j’était petite, toutes mes jupes devaient être fun et me permettre de faire des pirouettes: cela voulait souvent dire qu’elles étaient circulaires. Pendant très longtemps, mon vêtement préféré a été une jupe circulaire de couleur verte/jaune fluo attachée à un short de velo noir: parfait pour faire des pirouettes! C’était aussi le début des années quatre-vingt, où il était socialement acceptable de porter des vêtements comme ça.
