      Thank you! I pulled out much hair when putting this together…everything was just not working right at first…but in the end it came out ok. :-)

      Thank you. When I purchased the fabric online it said it was 45" wide…IT WASN’T!!!! I had designed a different dress, made a muslin for it, and spent a ton of time on my design…because all the yardage I purchased was just short a few inches wide on the width, I COULD NOT MAKE THE GOWN I REALLY WANTED TO MAKE! I was crushed. :-( I had spent so much time on it too…and my deadline to get it done was looming…! I did not have the money to buy another 6 yards of silk. Lesson learned!!
