Description

I got one step of the way toward making myself a dress - I bought three yards of Valori Wells Novella Rayon yesterday when I was in Sisters, OR for the Outdoor Quilt Show. It's in the wash right now and I'm hoping to get it stitched up tomorrow. I plan to use The Staple Dress pattern - I think it will look nice in the rayon which has a soft pretty drape to it.

Pretty fabric! I didn't know Valorie Wells made rayon! Will you be posting pictures from the quilt show like last year? Hope so!

Terryt1955 I have a few pictures but did not get as many as I would have liked. I'm going to go through and see what I have and see if they are any good. smile

The rayon is really nice - I got it at her store the Stitchin' Post in Sisters but you can also get it online at Hawthorne Threads. There are knits and voiles too - they were all so pretty.

Carolmarie Thanks! I can't wait to make it... I didn't have time to trace the pattern like I had hoped to today but planning on getting it started tomorrow.

Rebecca This is one of my favorite prints ever I think. I have the quilting cotton in a couple of color ways and now this rayon. Every time I see it I want to buy some.

Amanda I am seeing these dresses everywhere right now. Two of the blogs I follow just had their dresses on them also. Cant wait to see how yours turns out. I got some of this fabric in my Free spirit mystery box a couple of weeks ago. Its very pretty and I'm sure you dress will be lovely.
