The purple is a cute pique I got from Hancock a while back. The pink is a "Woven 1/4" Daisy Gingham Pink" from Fabric.com (DV-509 to be exact) and is a 80% polyester and 20% cotton blend. It is cute and light for summer.
The pattern was crazy strange to me. I guess I'm just so used to the McCall's, Vogue's and Simplicity's. I don't really care for the paper pattern, I much prefer the tissue paper but it was workable. The directions threw me for a loop many times and thankfully there were pictures to help me along the way. The Yolk was nuts! and putting it on the dress was not my idea of fun. After struggling through the steps I finally got the thing assembled. I love the dress. I think it may be a little too snug on the yolk for Miss K in a 7 so next time it will be in an 8. Now that I got the idea of the steps it won't be as hard to make another one; it is just the cutest thing! We took a trip to the library, ice cream shop, and strolled along the city streets. It was a fun day.
