I’d visited my local Fabricville on my day off and wouldn’t you know they were having a sale! Lucky gal that I am found the perfect fabric for the dress – AT 70% OFF! And thank goodness for it too because I needed a solid 9 yards. While I was there I also grabbed some great buttons, and some lace for my petticoat (which is still in progress).
The amazing luck continued to today when my boss brought me a bag of antique handmade doilies and handkerchiefs from her home in Wales. I am very happy that the lace on some of these handkerchiefs will make perfect cuffs and collars.
