It has been a very long time since I've sewn anything with a pattern ...
When Samantha saw this pattern, she knew she wanted this dress for graduation. She even waited for it to go on sale at JoAnn's.
When we picked up the pattern over Spring Break, *I* also found this beautiful batik. She usually picks out fabrics, so I'm super happy to be able to say I found this one for her. Of course, they didn't have enough, so we ended up driving 50 miles to get the fabric to avoid paying shipping. That turned out OK, though because I found 2 new quilt stores on that trip =)
Samantha has always liked batiks. She gravitates to that section of any fabric store. This one is in her school colors and the pattern is simply bold, which fits her style.
Wish me luck ... I'm going to need it.
