    I love this fabric! Saw it at Jo Annes and spent too much money on the spur of the moment to buy it! Soon I will have a great top to match your dress. Don’t worry, since I live in Houston, we probably won’t show up at the same party in matching outfits ;-D You look great in the dress, keep up the good work!

      You’re so cute! Yes, I did get it from Joann’s. I bought it at 50% off though. This fabric was really easy to work with.

      Wow thanks. The neck band was a little tricky, making it a little too big. But folding them over (I should have posted a pic) where buttons would go, made it a nice cover up-make it work addition.
