I'm still here. I've just been catching up on some much needed rest since we made it back from DC. We went up for my favorite cousin's wedding, which was beautiful; and also a much needed time away from my babies. It was great!!! I finished my dress which was M5845. I used a "summer" tweed that I found @ Joanns. It was very easy to make, even 4 a "super" beginner like myself. Here are pictures of it on my 'manni' & on me.
