First, thank you for all the kind comments on my Alabama Chanin dress! I really appreciate it. Still mulling over whether to lengthen or shorten...I'm leaning toward shorten. Should be able to spare a couple of inches! In next-make news: I requested some metallic linen swatches from Marcy Tilton for V1510 . They came super-fast -- I sent the request Friday and just got them today. I kind of love them all: I can't decide which color to get. Leaning toward Hematite (in the middle), but I like the silver ones too. I also asked about more metallic linen, and they sent this note: MORE SPARKLIES. They know me!
