I bought a beautiful black silk for $10/yard from my new friend Kashi. The fabric is a black-on-black spotted pattern. I think it will lend well to my vision of the ideal maxi dress. I'm super psyched to make it! And for $20 (I bought 2 yards), it's cheaper than all of the long summer dresses I've been eyeing up online.
More blog posts to come as I sew the dress!
