Green & more Green
I Love color. My son was getting married and my daughter needed a dress for the big day. I walked into a fabric store and this pink and green pique jumped at me. I knew this would be her dress. I used one of the first threads patterns that came out. I can't find it to recall the number. The dress was made of green pique with white piing down the princess seams. The overjacket is constructed of the floral pique. I did not deviate fromthe pattern. I added a hot pink flower to the jacket and I made a matching purse. Needless to say, she got a lot of rave revues at the wedding.
