Summer Of No Pants 2013 post #2

 Don't you love the names that ModCloth comes up with?  I decided to call this dress "Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?".    I started with "Alexander Henry" fabric I found (really cheap) at a Goodwill in Dallas, (the color ran when I washed it, so I tried to bleach it...I want to assure you that although still pretty, the colors are nothing like it was!), and Simplicity #8071, and made changes, got advice and made more changes all the way through!  This dress is going to the beach with me!


Did you know that Iced Peppermint Tea (recipe here) is the perfect pick-me-up while you are sewing?!
