So I decided to change things this year. If I couldn't find the type of dress I wanted, than I would make it. The Jane Austin dress and shrug from the second Mason-Dixon knitting book fit the bill perfectly. When my yarn shop started carrying Sublime Soya Cotton in the most beautiful spring colors, I knew I had found my match. My mom completed the picture with fabric from her favorite quilt store back home.
I have one more shrug to knit, edgings to add to the dress tops and skirts to sew on. We should be done in plenty 0f time...and I just might make the girls little bags to go with.
Now, back to work....so that I can think about that vest again!
