The dress - Take 2




So here is the second try. Joann was having a really great Columbus Day sale and I got this oh-so cute corduroy at 1/2 off. I think it fits better than the other dress did, and who can go wrong with polka-dots? Tomorrow is the big day for attempting button holes.


I picked this book up today at Barnes and Noble. It is by Anna Maria Horner. It has some really good how-to instruction, plus up to date projects. I looked at a couple of other sewing books and they mostly had projects I would never make. I think my next project will be out of this book.

That is such a sweet pattern! I like it on her. Good job! That one will be cute with a little shirt under too!
