Somehow, I never thought of this in a daywear fabric. It totally works! Love it! Thank you for reminding me of this pattern.

Thank you for the nice comments-and I cant figure out why the picture cannot be accessed by some viewers! My privacy settings allow access but it seems to have something to do with flickr access. I have contacted them but the responses can take time..... if anyone has any experience with this tech issue please let me know! Sorry al!
