When I bought the fabric for Luan's dress I originally had this swirly teal to pair with the plaid. When I got it home and cut it out it looked all wrong. So, I went back to the store and got some more fabric. The first time I got the coordinate that I actually used for Luan's dress and the second time I got a chinese koi pond print that works really well with the swirly teal. I wanted to finish up with the ice cream dress pattern and the pieces I had already cut out so I made up a second dress to put away for later. I'm sure we'll get invited to another birthday this year ;)
It still needs a button, story of my life :)
Once again, top stitching with Aunt Millie is a joy like everything else. She has become my primary sewing machine. I only use my fancy computerized Kenmore to wind Aunt Millie's bobbins, do the basting for gathering and to make buttonholes. Oh, I'm sure I'll use the kenmore for knits, too. One day.
