"The flower pattern photo fabric came from a man I met while I was digging in bags for fabric.  It had started to rain and things were a little wet.  I asked a guy who was walking by if he knew if I could have fabric from inside.  He said yes and so we went inside and he said it is left over from making samples.

The other fabric came from a wholesale garment selling guy.   I asked him if he had any rag fabric, said maybe, then came back with a bag of it in grey and blue.  I thanked him and took the fabrics home and made the dress."
