Anyway, I made a dress from one of the pieces I bought, which is chocolate brown rayon-cotton with a small floral print. I used the 'Esme' pattern from Lotta Jansdotter's Everyday Style book, because I love the first one I made and wear it to work all the time.
The same modifications were made to this dress as last time - I sewed the neckline facings by hand, and lengthened both the hem and sleeves a bit.
And I also wanted to put some glorious sunshine on this page... enter wildflowers picked from the side of the road near our house (in mid-winter..?!) and another pair of these (everyone in the family wants some) for which I'm using two strands of yarn at once for maximum warmth and happiness.
I hope you are having a good weekend, dear readers.
