The Giselle dress, the blues, and a soapbox: Oona’s flowers

The inimitable Oonaballoona made a stunning Giselle dress,  just look:


I was amazingly fortunate to have Oona test the Giselle pattern, her feedback was SO generous! (And also, I knew there’d be eye candy at some point. And fabric envy. I’m not sure how I’ll manage my sudden attack thereof…)

Oona talks about her approach to pattern testing in her post, along with a review of the Giselle pattern. And there is a giveaway! One copy of the Giselle paper pattern (just shipped from the printer, whee!) will go to a lucky winner. International contestants welcome!
