      One of those projects that turned out just as I’d hoped. We need some successes to keep us going, no?
      Make your dream come true! Design something for evening and make it, whether you have someone to wear it or not. Think of it as art. You may take a new direction! ;-))

    great result, not only because it is a tablecloth for little money, but also because you made a very elegant and stylish piece! BRAVO!!

      Thanks Ralf! By the way, the Japanese pattern project was, for me, very confusing. Are the side seams supposed to twist around the body? Because mine certainly do……..I am even more impressed by your talent for drafting after trying this project! :-))
