Sew Chaotically! - McCall's Fit and Flare Dress 7244

This dress went together very well.  Wanted you to see the absolutely "Roo" rainbow stripe on the soft grey, fairly substantial knit.  It washes and dries well.  The most work was on the lining!!!  I plan to make a couple of others and will probably just cut another back and front as lining....rather than fool with a facing AND a lining!!!  After reading some reviews on I did leave out the back zip, but did not cut the pieces on the I wanted to keep the curve.  It worked out just fine, with plenty of room for Roo to slip it off and on.

Isn't she a cutie patootie? (I think the dress is, too!)  Then today....there was this:

In honor of Roo and one of her favorite poets....with her mother's favorite sentiment:

What I can do — I will —
Though it be little as a Daffodil —
That I cannot — must be - Unknown to possibility
