Is it too late to join? I saw the McCall's M5655 and fell in love (helps that they have a really similar one at Talbot's for like $200 to push me over the edge!). I have a wedding to go to in May (my best bud's) and this would be perfect!

I picked up the fabric and the pattern today but I lent my sewing machine to my best bud to make her trousseau. McCall's M5655 view C (with the bow like the girl on the front), mint green linen.

Oooh, that sounds nice, I just looked it up again because i forgot which dress it was. You will have to post a pic when your done!
I bought the Butterick pattern I was in love with, I have my thrifted bright patterned saris washed and ready for cutting....now the motivation to make the things up!

should I wash my linen? I'll have this dress drycleaned. I probably should. How should I treat the edges so they won't fray? zig-zag, fray check, something else? I usually work with knits for my kids that don't fray as easily.

I always wash everything before i make anything.
I always overlock (serge) the edges. So i am not sure, zigzag may work also.

I don't have a serger (it's on my list but it's not high right now with the kitchen renovations brought on by buying an over range microwave that ended up being too heavy for our 30+ year old now-quite-obviously-homemade mdf cabinets) but i think i'll zigzag about 1/4 inch in before washing. sigh... I hate ironing... :-(

I've got room in my freezer right now so I'll pull a trick out of my Grandma's bag and not dry it all the way, ball it up and stick it in the freezer. Apparently, it's easy to iron things when they are frozen... I've done it with table cloths (where did Grandma keep her table linens? the freezer, of course! The whole point of their deep freeze was to store clean but unironed table linens and our slushee cups)
