I used Sewaholic Patterns Lonsdale dress with my excellent gold fabric from an estate sale. The fabric has a giant paisley print in gold, white, brown and orange. It is lightweight and silky, but not shiny. I don't know what type of fabric it is. I cut out a 2 and made no changes- it fits perfectly!
On other notes I have been looking at engagement rings (I want a ruby instead of a diamond), I caught a sore throat from subbing last Friday and am sick, I am still filling out endless job applications for teaching and I read all of The Hunger Games series in like 5 days last week. Did anyone else read those? They were good, even if they are meant for teens.
More finished projects soon!
