New Dresses



I love the smocked top dress that they sell at Victoria Secrets, but I do not like the $60 price tag.  A few months ago, Nancy and I went to JoAnns and we bought a bunch of material.  I was able to make six dresses for $90 - that is $15 each!  I really like the black and white print of the one I have on.  I wore it with black and silver flip-flops while John and I were running around shopping and doing some errands.  But, it looks good with my white high heels and white shrug for a little bit dressier look.  I made a few short dresses and a couple of the maxi dresses, too.  I made a long version of the bright yellow and orange dress for Nancy (which had pinks and purple, too).
