A Pretty Purple Dress

This dress is to wear to the wedding that I made the quilt for. I decided that I needed a new pretty dress, so I found one that I loved in the McCall’s catalouge (#5099). I walked around JoAnn frabrics for ages, trying to find the perfect fabric. I finally found a deep purple silky crepe type fabric, but I kept walking away from it because well, I don’t really like purple. But, finally it won and I bought it – and some really sweet silver ribbon. These ruffle things on the front, they look pretty don’t they? Let me tell you a little bit about them. Pain in the butt! Try cutting out a spiral of fabric, hemming one side and then straightening them out and sewing them to the rest of the dress. Whoa. That teaches me to get a girly style! Anyways, it finally go finished… I decided to go without the bow, just a straight ribbon. Now I just have to find shoes!
