My Florida Dress

On our trip to Florida, Grandma, Aunt Phylis and I took the kids on a trip to the JoAnn fabrics in their area. I had heard it was big and I really wanted to see it. And I must confess: it was quite nice. I picked out some fabric which was really not something I would normally pick. However, I thought it was really pretty, it had a border of seashells at the bottom (how fitting!) and I loved the color. The problem was, the line was a mile long. After waiting for a while, I was ready to give up. Grandma and Aunt Phylis pushed me back in line and told me that they would wait. To make a long story just a little bit shorter, I waited in line, got my fabric and checked out. It ends up the fabric was on some crazy clearance and I got more than 4 yards for $7!! I love a good bargain. Turns out I had enough for my dress and one for Katie (in progress). So there you have it, a dress made for a few bucks with fabric procured in Florida. And excuse the random pictures, please. I have resigned myself to the fact that a combination of my lack of photogenic-ness, and Jeff's propensity for taking goofy pictures is not going to add up to anything fabulous. Oh, well. You get the point.
