This year I wanted to make a "Red, White and Blue" dress for my daughter before July 4th. I found this plaids fabric at a local fabric store for 70% off from the regular price of $3.99 a yard! Sold!
I am not a fabric expert, but I think this fabric may be considered medium weight fabric. I just thought the Party Dress pattern was perfect for this fabric.

About 2 months ago I did fabric shopping online. I was browsing through and I saw so many beautiful fabrics. And this nani IRO double gauze fabric was one of them. The fabric cost more than what I am usually willing pay, so I did not buy it right away. But then I kept thinking about this fabric, so I had to buy it. I bought less than a yard, thinking to make something simple. A fabric this beautiful just need a simple design to show itself off.

I have been keeping myself busy lately. I have many sewing projects I want to try. But after making the garden party dress that took me hours and one sleepless night to complete, I was a bit burned out. I needed a quick and easy project. Simple refashion project was what I needed.
