Yup, that’s right; I used fabric from JoAnns!
There was an upcoming Civil War Reenactment in my area. I needed a work dress. I was at JoAnns. I made a purchase!
Looking back, I wish I had chosen a larger checked fabric. From a distance, the dress looks, well to be honest, like mush! It’s not that bad, but let’s just say, it’s not my favorite creation! But in reality, it works for a work dress!

🙂 Nice one!
It’s gorgeous! I’m sad because my local Jo-Ann’s has rid itself of its homespun fabrics and anything that may resemble the Civil War era. And I can’t bring myself to buy fabric online either, so I guess it’s back to driving an hour for good fabric. Anyway, I just love your dress! 🙂
