This is my first project posted on Craftster!  I made these two dresses a month ago but forgot to post them until now.  These are from the pattern McCall's M5320, with some shortening to make them not so formal.

Yup Jo-Ann's has it.  My Jo-ann's has it back on the wall with the color organized quilt fabric.

lovely work, the material really flatters the dress and how it's built.

The fabric is from Joann Fabrics, they have a few different ones that are Geisha themed, they are part of the calico print and quilt section at my local store.
