A Great Mail Day

AMH Mail Day

Have you seen this great new pattern by Anna Maria Horner? I first noticed the brown version of the dress back when she posted her photos from quilt market. I was hoping she’d come out with a pattern and she did! I am planning on making view A and C in the same fabrics as the pattern. I was lucky enough to find the fabrics on Fabric Worm and Banberry Place, but if you are interested, it is getting harder and harder to come by so hurry! And it is oooohhhhh so soft and has a wonderful drape to it. I’m a little nervous about sewing on it and am debating getting a rubber bottomed foot so the fabric doesn’t slide around. Advice?

And how can you miss the beautiful blue bouquet from Flea Market Fancy sitting on top! My first and only blue fabric from this out of print line by Denyse Schmidt. I purchased it from a fundraiser by 2RedHens. She is raising money for cervical cancer, a great cause.

    Happy mail day to you! That Little Folks is great, isn’t it? Can’t wait to see it turned into a dress; you must model it! Lucky you with the blue bouquet! It took all my self-control to not spend what we don’t have ;). Have fun with it!

    Lovely! I think I’ll have to purchase that pattern too! I just made a baptism dress out of the voile fabric and it wasn’t too hard to sew with – I just used my regular sewing machine foot and it turned out just fine. I did use a smaller/finer needle though and that seemed to work the best. Good luck and cant wait to see your dress!

    I ordered the pattern as well. I’ve had my eye on it for a couple of months, and I was so excited to see that she released the pattern this week. I can’t wait to see all of the different versions that people make!
