"The destiny of nations lies far more in the hands of women, the mothers, than in the possessors of power, or those of innovators who for the most part do not understand themselves. We must cultivate women, who are the educators of the human race, else the new generation cannot accomplish its task."

Remember "The Dream Dress"?
Well, this morning I decided to have fun with it and make it up, but in a much more modern way. It really reminds me of the 1920's flapper style, which of course, I just love! No lace, no frills and a bright and sunny print. I did trim out the bottom of each layer of the skirt with a coordinating fabric which is the same print that I made the pantaloons and the hat out of. Then I re-did the hat, but also much more scaled down and not nearly as "poofy" as the first one. So this one is much more in line with this dress. I have to say, I can't decided which way I like it better. I am contemplating if I want to make this into a pattern as I am not sure how much interest there would be in it. But I figured if I showed it done in several ways it might interest more people. I would love some of your feedback.
