QuoteI'd like to sponsor a Dress challenge - and follow Mudcat's lovely idea of awarding the winner(s) a little $25 gift certificate at an appropriate fabric store/site. I would supply the gift certificates; the same caveat that Mudcat provided applies, it has to be website or store to which I can set up the gift certificate for the winners.

Quote from: indigotiger on December 09, 2018, 02:56:15 pmI'll keep everyone posted as to how the little buttons do in the wash... after all, I am going to need to wash this dress at least once or twice before I wear it... despite pre-washing the fabric, there is still enough loose indigo that it turns my hands blue when I am working with it! I've no desire to get to the end of the day with blue skin or to dye my lingerie blue
