Find inspiration in: Alice Blue Dress

The other day when I complained that no recent events had impacted my garter-making I lied a little bit. See, I wrote that post during some found time on Friday evening and scheduled it to post on Monday. Then, on Saturday morning I took my Emily to see out neighbor friend perform in a talent show. One of the girls sang Alice Blue Gown. You guys, this was no ordinary 10-year-old. I cannot even begin to describe the clarity, the sweetness of her voice. It was so stunning.

Normally I do not like to associate my garters with small children however loose the connection. But I have to make an exception this time.  If you've heard Alice Blue Gown before then I think you'll agree: how could you not be inspired?!
I once had a gown, it was almost new,
Oh, the daintiest thing, it was sweet Alice blue,
With little forget-me-nots placed here and there,
When I had it on, oh, I walked on the air!
And it wore, and it wore, and it wore,
'Til it went, and it wasn't no more.

I want an azure dress with sweet little flowers.  In fact, I sort of want an azure everything! Facinator, flowers,  scarf, shoes, you name it! For now I've resigned myself to a little Alice Blue mood board.

Ack! Now, I have to choose between making an Autumn-toned garter and an Alice Blue garter!  Which one inspires you more?
