      Aw, thank you so much! The fabric took an hour and half to find but was worth it, even now. Annnnnd I may or may not have sewed one of the sleeves inside out three… times. Maybe. Or not. By the grace of god it came out looking like clothing.

      Thanks for the encouragement!

      THANK YOU! I’m thinking pastels for Spring are oh-like-so 2000. (^_~)
      I’m really in love with the colors too. Even if they uncannily resemble autumn.

    I like your print. It makes me think of vacation. And sunshine. Guess that is why photos are at the pool. Nice project.

      I hope you had a wonderful vacation. You can have this robe as a beach cover-up if you want. (^_~)
