Polka Dot Splendour, Beginnings

Well, I'm ready to set out on a new project. As summer approaches, I've realized I need some cooler dresses.

I began surfing etsy for 1930's and 40's patterns and finally landed on this one at Mrs. Hudson's Sewing Room.

I just couldn't pass it up! 

I then began surfing fabric sites. No matter how many times I try, sometimes I just can't get good fabric in local stores... They specialize in Quilting fabrics, and I just can't ever get it right.

Well this time I think I got it. A Red and white polka dot seersucker from Joann.com .

It matched the pattern so beautifully, but I was scared of the 100% poly... Well it was on sale for $3 a yard, I thought , 'Hey, what's the harm'

Well it's perfect! Soft and flowy, and I just think it'll be a joy to work with.

I'll udate soon!
Ps, Do pop over to Sahd, We're back up and running, and have some delightful new contributors, not to mention a new website and FB page! Ta!

Thanks! I can't wait to get started! I've got the blouse cut out and have had other things to do and couldn't work on it... :/ but anyways, I'm excited. :D
