      Go for a knit! I swear it’s as comfortable as pants, you don’t need to coordinate a shirt, and it never wrinkles. It’s my new best friend…

    Hi Leah, that´s great that you want to make a formal dress! I would just take some simple pattern and make it in awesome fabric. I wish I had an oportunity, too :). Jana

      Oh, thank you! It’s more nerve wracking then anything else. I’m using a BurdaStyle pattern (and ignoring all the directions, of course) with taffeta. Let’s hope it works…

      Candy, thank you so much! My foot is, sigh, still in it’s little boot, and I’m still on crutches, but I should be walking on it by next Tuesday, and until then I will just suck it up and deal. And make people bring me things, which isn’t the worst fate in the world. I’m so glad you like my blogs! Thank you for reading, and for friending me! And I can’t even talk about how cute your Circus Friends Skirt and Chocolate Date Dress are. You make amazing things!
