I think it's lovely, the shrug and the dress. Grin I probably can't tell that both of them were hand-sewn! Smiley

Congratulations on the nomination, too!

Both the shrug and the dress are Fab! Great job. Love them! Is the dress from a pattern? or your own design?

Thanks everyone!!

theatregirl25 - I used a pattern on this one because it was the first dress I ever made. I wish I could tell you which pattern it was, but I can't find the pattern!  It was one of the $1.87 patterns from Wal-Mart.

that dress is SO cute
I love it

and I think I'll have to go make a shrug like that... if you don't mind me stealing your idea
