Thank you so much, everyone. The stripes do match frighteningly well, there's a description of how to do it on my blog if anyone's curious about how you do it :)

This is so cute! do you make clothes on a custom order basis? i would love a dress like this

Marie; I'm afraid I don't do custom orders, but it's so very flattering that you ask :)
I'm a full time student and I often have very demanding assignments that'll prevent me from getting any sewing done for weeks, so that wouldn't be fair to a possible client. Other than that, I simply don't consider myself skilled enough or fast enough to recieve payment for anything I sew.

oh thank you so much for your kind response. i'll keep up with your blog just to see what you're up to sewing wise. my mother sewed so many cute things for me when i was growing up. that gene didn't pass on, but i have such a soft spot in my heart for handmade clothes.
