What is it that makes a dress look just right? You can have the most wonderful pattern, but if you don't have the right fabric, the dress won't look wonderful. In fact, if you have chosen the wrong fabric, the dress will look anything but wonderful.
On the other hand, you can use a very ordinary pattern, but if you choose the right fabric, the dress can be stunning, awesome, wonderful and have the WOW factor.
Of course, this is all subjective. We all have different tastes and I see that as a good thing.
My questions to you are:
- How important is the fabric?
- How important is the pattern or style of garment?

You should have a look at the two adorable dresses that Cass, from Cass Can Sew, had made for this month's sew-along; a Flutter Sleeve dress and a Pillowcase dress. Then head over to A Home, Made, where you will see two gorgeous dresses sewn by Amy; a T-shirt dress and a Peasant dress.
Kristy has a giveaway running at the moment: an autographed copy of Girl's World, by Jennifer Paganelli. I'd really rather you didn't enter the giveaway, because I'd like to win that book. So why am I telling you... because I'm so nice... LOL!!!
