My om had been wanting me to make her a new dress for a while. We bought a first fabric but they cut it too short and didn’t give me enough, so we went back out and she found this great printed silk at JoAnn’s in the clearance section for $5/yd!! The dress turned out great, even though I officially HATE sewing with silk, and my mom loves the dress. To make hemming easy on myself I used Stitch Witchery.
Full details and more pics can be found you know where :)
