  • Thanks for the compliments! The lovely chrysanthemum print is quilting cotton, "Gilded Kiku" from the ubiquitous Alexander Henry collection.

    To be fair, it's not QUITE nine yards of bias tape, but I was definitely well into the third package. Perhaps I'll attempt this dress again (in a smaller size!) when the memory fades. But there are other, more interesting patterns to work with first!
