This makes me so glad! I'm not going to have time to start on it tonight, but perhaps tomorrow night I will! I'm going to blog along through the process and try to be good and take lots of pictures as I go! I hope it can be as much a learning experience for others interested in making dresses as it is for me.
I pulled all the fabric out and was looking at it and it's 100% (if not more) as gorgeous as I expected. Real quality stuff. I need to finish my dress form and trace my patterns onto tissue paper before I get to working with the actual fabric now.
IT CAME! IT FINALLY CAME! My fabric is heeeeeeere! I'm at school (of course) but I had my sister open it while I webcammed with her and it looks great from here. All in all, it took about 15 days to arrive, which really isn't that bad for an international package, it was just a little mess to get there. I guess all's well that ends well. I will give it to Chrisanne that they made a valiant effort and they got my fabric to me at no additional cost to me, just a little more time and a lot of emails.
