Most Favorite Dress So Far...

Yes, that is what I think it is! 
I wore it to a most wonderful wedding last night and I just felt so glamorous and so comfortable at the same time: what a perfectly perfect combination!  {smile}

Here is my version of  Simplicity 'Project Runway' #2444:

The fabric came from Joanns' 'Simply Silky' collection. The pattern looked pretty complicated (especially that fancy collar with the knot in the front) but it really wasn't. Also the size that I had cut fit me perfectly and I didn't have to take anything in. The kind of fabric was completely new to me to work with and also that didn't give me any problems. 

Yay! I think I'm going to look for more of that 'Simply Silky' fabric!  <wink>

At the Lake...

To celebrate our last days together, Miss M. and I decided to go on a walk to Rattlesnake Lake, just past North Bend, WA. It was ...
