Getting Braver...

I've been really wanting to try my hand at making a fifty's style soda fountain dress for awhile now.  So, while spending time in Lafayette a week or so ago, I did some therapeutic shopping at Joann's.  I found this fabric to go with the Simplicity 6587 pattern (all on sale, plus a coupon, of course!):
My sister says this fabric will look really good for this pattern...we'll see!  She does have good taste, though
I think I am going to try dress A (which is the green one), and add the sash from dress B (the blue one).  I hope it comes out ok!!!  I'm pretty nervous about all those button holes...ELEVEN all together O_o:

oooo...I love it! I just bought a similar dress from Land's End except it has 3/4 length sleeves. I can't wait to see the finished product!
