This fabric is so delicious. I got it at a rummage sale for a few dollars. It's the soft green color of money, with an obvious weft of white thread running through it - looks like linen, but it's soft and light like cotton shirting.
Also, that border print and striping is so pleasing to my eye, although it gave me fits to lay this dress out and plan and match the stripes. I had to rip a few seams to get the stripes to line up, and even still, if you look closely, they don't match exactly.
I skipped the shoulder ties and allowed the border print to dictate a longer length. So this dress feels a little dressier than my green calico. I put on the scarf and jacket for the cool morning - I was pleased with the dash of red next to the green. Christmas can't claim all the red and green!
