    So sorry to respond so late! I actually designed this one myself. Maybe some day I will figure out how to upload patterns. Thanks for the kind words!

    Really nice work. I love to see second hand fabric be put to such great use. It will surely have a long life ahead.

    Thanks so much! I love it when the bust darts turn out nice. So often they end up pointy. I hate that!

    I made this a couple of years ago for a wedding but then kind of put it away. I recently pulled it out and don’t know why I haven’t been appreciating it. I am going to give it a wear this spring….

    I love that fabric print! It’s so hard to find cool patterns these days. Vintage fabric is the best if you can find it in the right quantity. Looks really comfortable too!

    I got it in Atlanta at Gail K fabric. It’s really the only fabric store in the area that carries a selection of nice garment fabrics.

    Thanks for the comments LaLa! I used a pattern I had drafted for a pair of shorts and then added the top part. I love the blouse you have posted.

    Created the wedding dress and three bridesmaid dresses. All the bridesmaids were able to choose the style they wanted. They were very easy to work with and I think they were all pretty happy wit…
