    That dress is amazing!
    The pattern for it is very nice. Not real complicated though I never liked collars.
    Her attention to detail is apparent, and the amount of sewing involved in the finished product is mind boggling! Wow! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    How about a Selvage Bag?

    My wife made one. Iím not sure what bag pattern that she used, but there are several that would work. She made blocks as she accumulated selvage edges, and made the bag when she had enough blocks assembled.

    Now, that is a great idea!

    I have lots of selvages cut in WOF by 1.5" - 2.5" strips. A purse for fabric shopping or quilt shows. Wow, thank your wife for me, please. :-D
