San Francisco Ba...
I usually don’t make clothes for other people, but I couldn’t resist when my mother agreed to let me make her a back-to-school dress. I was home for the fourth of July and wearing (of course) my 4th of July Dress when we found a perfect apple-print fabric in a similar cotton voile. (If you live in the area, it is definitely worth checking out Crossroads Fabrics in Watsonville for their great deals). My mother is a 3rd grade teacher and I thought this would be a perfect back-to-school dress. I made it up in the same pattern as my 4th of July Dress, adding sleeves and giving me a chance to correct any construction errors I had made with the last one (and to make some new ones). I even found some fun apple buttons to match!
