LOVE IT

I copied an old nighty that I've enjoyed for a few years, and it came out fantastic. The original gown was from April Cornell. Remember that place? I really like how the colors, pleats, and piping worked out. Again, the fabric is from FIDM. So the whole thing cost under $5, that's including the piping. I wish I had bought enough fabric to make Annie one. As you can see, she likes it too.

That is quite lovely and the colors would look fantastic on you. It looks comfortable, yet stylish. Good for you.
And a bargain besides, what more could a person want?

I love it too! I also love the sweater fabric dresses for the three of you...is it a knit? I love your trumpet flowers and all your TODAY observations. Suddenly I missed so many posts! Have a great vacation!

What an adorable maxi dress? Are you using it as a nightie or a dress? I think it's fantastic. Yes, I remember and miss April Cornell stores.
