In rememberance of how pain staking this dress was to produce I'm doing this post. Today is my birthday and I decided to finish one of my projects, and to eat red velvet cake till hubby comes home. I still have some bits to finish up and some pressing to do. This is actually for the Copycat Challenge. On another note I'm so greatful to God for life and continued blessings.

Special thanks to hubby for the photos. He is a big fan of the dress!
Recently I got a bit over excited and I bought all three drape drape books. What got into me? I got a job to do some dresses much like the one piece side drape top featured in book 2. I therefore had intentions to buy book 2 but I remembered seeing a lovely dress with gathers at the side, back and sleeve in book 1; so I just had to buy it. Then I thought to myself "why not complete the collection, the new one must be good as well!"......so here I am. I cannot wait to make a few of the items. :) which patters are your favorites?
