    Very very cute. I have a red-head too and she doesn’t wear much yellow, so I will have to show her these and inspire her to seek more yellow!

      Oh, that’s pity you didn’t recognize it… They change featured member projects two days ago…, but you can be proud anyway!

      I used a New Look pattern I picked up at the store. I would have used my own (as I have made a pattern just like this for class) but all of my pattern making supplies and blocks are packed right now. I am in the process of moving. Shift dresses are so easy to make.

    This dress is just adorable and I love the purse, with it, as well.

      Thank you! I love the purse so much, I bought one for myself as well. We got a lot of compliments on them when we were in the Keys.
