Frankly My Dear

Yes I did it... I used the Black & White Stripe Fabric again & "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." 


This classic movie quote (which actually deviates from the book's original wording, which drops the "frankly") inspired my project for a blog hop I'm doing with Online Fabric Store & Premiere Prints.  Each of the bloggers involved were randomly given a Classic Novel & asked to create a project using the book as inspiration & Premiere Prints Fabrics as the material.  Fun right?!

Welcome to those of you that are hopping over from Jen Rizzo's lovely blog!  I loved her take on Little Women.  If you haven't guessed yet, I was given Gone with the Wind.  So yes, I did it.  I used my favorite classic pattern.  Again.  And as Miss Scarlett would say,"Fiddle Dee Dee."

Being a Georgia Girl for most of my life, I am all to familiar with the novel & the film Gone with the Wind.  Goodness, even my middle name is Ashley (& Tara was on the list of potential first names I've been told), so it was quite fitting that I received this book as my inspiration.


I love reupholstering chairs.  They are a relatively easy project & make such a dynamic change once they are completed.  Opting for a new & classic look on an old chair, I used the Premiere Prints Stripe in Black & White as my seat fabric.  After stapling the perimeter, I decided to switch things up & added a simple cotton twill ribbon with spaced antique brass tacks to give it a more formal look.  



So thanks to all who have sat through my endless projects with this fabric.... I truly adore it.  Be sure to head on over to the uber talented KariAnne at Thistlewood Farm to see her genius take on a classic.  

If you would like to start at the begining, like any good book, then you should go over to The Handmade Home!



All fabrics were provided by Online Fabric Store for this project.

  9. Hi Kristin! Love The Chair! Im Going Back And Forth On Whether Or Not I Keep My Grandmothers Dining Room Set Or Go Less Formal. I DecideD To Keep The Table But Buy Parson Chairs. I Only Have 3 ChaIrs Because Im Still Not Sure Im Doing The Right Thing. But Now That I See ThEse, Do You Think Doing 6 Chairs In A Stripe Would Be Too Much?

  23. Hi Kristin, for the poster, did you purchase a digital download? I didn't see that as an option on the Etsy listing. And if so, would you mind sharing what size you had it printed? Thanks!
