Neve wore a red dress, red dress, red dress....

Do you know that children's song?
Here is a snap of the dress I've made. i still have to do the hem and sew in the snaps. I'm too lazy to line up button holes and also the overstitch on the bodice.

But I did make my own buttons!!! And they turned out perfectly. I used the SU scallop punch on shrink art plastic and coloured it with white pencil. Cut the petals and put holes with my cropadile. They even turned out the same size. how cool is that?

Now I'm on the scout for more fabric. The regular fabric places I used to haunt are no more.... And to find really cool graphic, colourful fabric, I have to go downtown. ACK. I hate going downtown and trying to find parking. We'll see what happens.

Hope you're having a sunny day. It's rainy, rainy, rainy here. But we had another wonderful day yesterday with dinner at the sailing club. The kids just love it there and I can crochet. lol

Thanks for looking,

Those buttons are perfect! How on earth did you get them to be EXACTLY the same as the fabric? Can't wait to see the whole dress.
