      Thank you very much! The fabric was good to work with after a few practice runs. It responded well to the iron, which I used to press the seam before every run of stitches, and that helped a lot. The dotted pattern made it much easier to cut straight lines because I could just follow the dots. Will definitely use it again!

    Really cute – I love the bias finish on the dress and lining hems.
