"Thank You Angela"

Angela from RiAnge Creations has found some of the fabrics I was looking for at her local Jo-Ann's Fabric Store.  Angela kindly offered to buy some and send it to me.  I received my fabrics yesterday ~ I was sooooo pleased .
It still amazes me that people we only know through blogging and have never met would be so kind and do something like this. I can't Thank Angela enough and I truly appreciate what she has done. 
"Thank You" again Angela   :)

The fabric is a light weight sheer and it does look somewhat different from the dress on the McCall's pattern, however I will line it with a white fabric ~ the white really makes the colors brighter.....I love the large floral print ~ I will make this fabric work!
I told Angela, I normally don't name my garments but this dress will be my Angela dress.

                 Picture from McCall's site.
The description on Jo-Ann's site of the other  fabric Angela sent me , says it is a polyester but to me it  feels like a soft cotton. In real life, the colors in this fabric below, are as bright as the colors appear in this picture.
The colors are beautiful and it is a very nice fabric weight for a dress.

I am very anxious to start my garments.

 Thank You Angela!

My son is graduating this year so we are busy with Prom and Graduation activities this week!

Hi Ann,

doesn't look the same. I'm missing much orange. But, never mind. It's beautiful and so kind of Angela.

Had an similar neatness with some of my blogger. She often goes on short-trips to Italy. Last time she bought a La Mia Boutique for me (-: (Can't buy it as single-issue in Germany anymore.)

Have fun by making your dress. I'm looking forward to your result.

Nice weekend!

I'm glad Angela found a similar fabric for you. I too looked in my Joann's after your post but they didn't have any left.

Aw, prom pictures! How nice! What a stylish girl you son is dating. Love that fabric; I might just have to try to hunt some down myself. Can't wait to see your Angela Dress.

It's nice to find good people in cyberspace, it is impossible to be otherwise with you, I can not wait to see her dress over, those colors are bright and full of light.
My congratulations to your son.
