I could have sworn I’ve posted this one before, but I can’t find it now. (Obviously, my tagging needs some work.) Anyway, yes, another 9929, this time in a border print!
I’m pretty sure I bought this fabric on eBay with absolutely no idea what I was going to do with it. (As the bromide has it, leap and the net will be there, or, in my case, buy the fabric and the pattern will appear. I’m waiting on quite a few patterns right now …)

Another winner, so bright and fresh looking.

What a great dress for July celebrations……………………… as is for Canada Day here and with some blue accessories (a cardigan ?) for you south of the 49th.
Nice cheerful dress. But what a great book review.
And I thought I knew something about language…thanks for my mouseover fun…and the dress is cute!
I love this fabric!!
This is so enjoyable, and thank you for the poems, too. It is lovely that you are posting often, again!
