"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.

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!
