Fall dress idea

Fall colors are beautiful. Leaves take on such marvelously bright colors and spark the air with a fresh feel and look for the Autumn season. It is quite cheery when the sun shines--even when it is cold, foggy and even rainy, there is a lift one gets from seeing the yellows, reds, and oranges contrasted against the dark trunks and stems and fading greens of Fall.

A friend and I were shopping and she proceded to tell me her plan of making a very simple dress of a fall color, brown, and then making an apron with the Fall-Thanksgiving motifs on it for wearing the combination on the many occasions that arise this time of year.

Now is the time to purchase Fall fabrics at the various sales. I try to catch some of the sales from either JoAnn's or Hancocks. I hope to make some for the girls unless we find time for them to make up their own combination Fall dress-apron set.

The idea is based around using Simplicity 5189 for the dress using a heavier fabric for the cooler months paired with Simplicity 5201 and she suggested making the bias trim out of the same fabric as the dress.
