Based on your comments, I think you mainly voted for the fabric I suggested for my dress and to be honest, I couldn't agree with you more. I have been hoarding this piece of cloth for almost 2 years, just not being able to decide what to do with it, but getting it out on occasion for some petting. Man, you wouldn't believe how soft this baby is!
I already made a muslin for the bodice of the dress and have made minor adjustments to make sure that this dress fits (more or less) appropriately.
I see a trip to a fabric store in my near future, to buy the right lining for this fabric so this baby gets made before the end of March.
On a different note, if I were to move this little blog to Wordpress, would you move with me?
