This dress was made for Pam, a lovely lady back east. She sent me the fabric she wanted her gown to be made from– and I think it turned out so terrific! It was an embroidered poly taffeta, and it was very pleasant to work with. The best part was she sent 13 yards, which was juuuuuust enough! Any less and this gown would have looked very different. I used up nearly every inch of fabric available!
