Today Millie (storytelling partner) and I gave tours in our latest dresses.
Christine and I had a marathon sewing Saturday last weekend and we managed to complete two dresses.
Christine made Millie's dress and I made mine:).
You may recognize the frogs on my dress as those from the dress I bought last week at Goodwill.
This fabric was a bit pricier that what I usually buy but I found it on sale at a nearby quilt shop on the $15 per yard rack marked down to $5 a yard.
It is some of the most wonderful fabric I have used for a dress in that it is cotton but feels like silk!
The vintage lace collar was a fun find just under $5 during one of my antiquing sprees.
The blue braided trim on the bodice was found at Hancock's for .99 cents a yard
(it took about 7 yards).
Although the dress is costlier than some of the others it was fun to make and to wear.
Every once in a while I splurge with the money saved on all the other dresses:).
Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
