1. As someone with 394 patterns and 1987 pieces of fabric in my stash the combinations and choices can be overwhelming. I say if your gut is telling you this pattern and that fabric, go with your gut! Can't wait to see the finished project!

  2. I just had to comment, for so many reasons.
    1. I looove the pattern.
    2. I looove the fabric.
    3. the lack of parallel construction in the phrase "1 people have commented" was driving me bonkers. (Of course, when I clicked on it and opened up the comments, there were 2 comments here. Entropy ever increases.
    4. I'm dying to know if you'll use some such vintage trim around the neckline. Lace? Rick-rack? Piping?
    Share your results!
    (In the time that I've been composing this comment, there is a 3rd comment already. Your post is quite popular!)

  3. I think closing the case is the right thing… perfect match!

    Do share photos of the finished project. Best of luck with it!

  4. oh it will be lovely! my mother had this exact same pattern made up in a lavendar pansy printed seersucker when i was very little. it was always my favorite dress. i am envious.

  5. Hi there! Thanks for all the votes of confidence in my choice!

    I'm not sure if I'll do any trim – maybe some piping, but I need to actually have the fabric in hand before I decide…

    It doesn't say "Anne Adams" anywhere but it is a mail order pattern that was ordered by a Mrs. C. L. Fleming in Crestview Florida from "The Progressive Farmer." I have the original mail envelope she received it in.

    If it weren't so incredibly hot in my studio loft, I'd be working on the muslin lining for this today. Oh, well…
