My MOB dress

Here is a quick post on the dress I made to wear at my daughter's wedding.  No specific requirements from the bride.

It is the first wrap dress I have made.  I think it came out pretty well.  I love flounces!  If I'd ever wear dresses, I'd consider make more wrap style dresses, however....


This is the "wrap" I made and I was glad I had it when it cooled down in the evening.


Hubby bought a coordinated tie to wear.

Very Occasional Post...How to Buy Fabric

I know, I know. I have been out of the blog habit but I just had to share this wonderful link. It's an "important" essay on How To Buy Fabric - you just HAVE to read it.

DressADay on How to Buy Fabric

On a more serious note, for those of us who would like to see the US textile industry revived a bit, I am starting a list of USA made (and sourced) fabrics.  Please help improve this list by sending me additions or corrections.

Thanks for stopping by, and keep on sewing!
