Classy. I had Wild Ginger (free type) and could not get it to print correct so I left it alone. Your dress came out wonderful!

So "Kay"! Was there a particular reason you handstitched the understitching at the neckline? Would machine stitching be too "heavy"? And what is your source for labels..yours is very tailored and classy..of course!!!

I love looking at your meticulous work and love that handstitching. It's a shame it can't be seen, but it's nice to know it's there! This looks especially great with the safari jacket.

I could look at your sewing all day! This sheath is as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside. Thanks for all the pictures you put in your review. Your sheath is another winner, of course!
