Gorgeous fabric, amazing fit, super versatile. This dress pattern called for a back zipper but we decided it didn't need one. It's good to keep and open mind and be flexible. The pattern is a guide more than the last word.

Here is a bag "inspired" by an expensive one purchased at a party. It is a deceptively simple-looking bag but actually required quite a few pieces and a certain amount of concentration when putting it all together. Sometimes making something from scratch gives you an appreciation for the cost of time and labor. Turned out great!
