Hawaiian Dress

I am so happy to have finally finished my Hawaiian dress from fabric sent to me from my sister in Hawaii!  I started it back in June.  I used New Look 6053.  I chose to underline the whole dress since the back ground is white and I want to wear it in the summer without having to wear a slip. 

It is knee length with a back zipper.  The fabric has a design running down the middle of it as you can see and both selvidges have ferns. 
I am so excited- I can't wait for summer!

I've had cats that ate bread, noodles, corn on the cob even soy bean pods and now-
pumpkin guts and seeds!

She couldn't get enough.

Feline Friday- Artsy Photo of Alice

I call this "Portrait of a Cat" by my daughter. 
I think it really captures her emotion and her mustache. 
(Alice's; my daughter doesn't have a mustache.)
