Absolutely love this fabric. Purple (radiant orchid) is the color of the year, you know. Bought it here locally at SR Harris for $5/yd. My favorite fabric store is now no more and so I am adjusting my sewing and fabric habits. I am also grieving that fact, especially when I broke a stretch twin needle the other day and realized I wouldn't be able to go buy one at the store. That was the only place that carried them here locally. Now I have to order them online.
Anyway, this dress is an awesome travel dress. Folded it up in the suitcase and pulled it out right before wearing it and not a wrinkle in sight. Stretchy knit, so it is super comfy. Wore it all funeral day and it was lovely.
