I've had this pattern around for a couple of years now, and finally, FINALLY did it! Used some fabric that I picked up at the Wally World for a buck a yard- thought it was some kind of synthetic, but lo and behold, the flame test says natural! Score! It looks and feels like raw silk, but I'm pretty sure it's not...not at $1 a yard!



Sorry for the crap pics- finally got a bit of time to myself. Changes made to the pattern: ditched the whole elastic waist thing, and cut three 6" wide strips of the fabric, selvedge to selvedge. Sewed them together end-to-end, then folded it in half the long way and made a loooong belt (this wraps around my waist 3 times and still ties comfortably!) Also did my own facings on the neckline, and rolled all of the seam edges under and topstitched them down. I really feel good about this one.  Smiley



Thanks for lookin'- hope all of you are having as great of a day as I have!  Grin
