And well, here is my new dress. It's made from a pink rayon doubleknit from Gorgeous Fabrics. It pressed wonderfully, but if you look closely you will see some kind of salt residue from my iron on the front. I need to figure out how to get rid of that. The doubleknit is wonderful to wear, but I think I would make this dress again in a lighter knit. There are several points where you are sewing through 6 layers of fabric and I really had to wrestle with my machine to make it work.

This is probably my last post of the year. I've enjoyed the sewing recaps that I've seen many of you, my sewing friends, post on your blogs in the last few days. I look forward to seeing more of your projects in 2013!
