This dress was made last summer using Kwik Sew 3402. The fabric is a drapey knit with a tropical print purchased from The Fabric Fairy. They do not have this particular print anymore, but they have a category called, "Mamas Deserve Yummy Fabric Too", where there are lots of neat prints.
DH and I will have a date night this weekend to celebrate our seventeenth wedding anniversary, which was officially last Saturday. Thanks for all the well wishes by the way. I would like to sew a new dress for this occasion. I am thinking about this pattern from the Burda Style - 12/2009 - issue.
I have a crinkle, jade-colored, sequined, gauze that I think would be just the right combination of casual and snazzy. Perfect for dinner in boho Paia Town followed by a walk along the seashore. Also, did you hear Ann is having a pajama sew along over Thanksgiving Weekend? I am going to participate in this as well. You might like to also. The more the merrier! I haven't decided on what type of pj's to make yet, but I plan to make some for the boys as well.

Have you heard Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow? It's my favorite.
