It is definitely a special occasion dress, and I think it would be a cute little church dress also.
The peachy pink of the linen is so pretty, and the drape is great. The white fabric on the collar and arm bands is cotton batiste.
I'll be making a couple more summer items, then I suppose I should be getting a head start on the fall and winter. I'm really thinking hard this time about what to include as a fun Christmas item too. Last year I was way too late in the game, and I only ended up doing one little mouse toy. While I enjoyed making it, I think I need to make something that will not be as time consuming. Just thinking out loud for now, but before you know it, the leaves will be falling and we will be dragging out holiday decorations out of the attic!
I hope everyone has fun and fantastic plans for the 4th, I'll be cooking up some BBQ ribs for dinner this year. I don't think I have had ribs for over 10 years or more, so this will be fun. I also have to get up early in the morning to make my blueberry pie :)
