A Dress for a Date

I have a very important breakfast date this morning. I am on my way to have breakfast with President George W. Bush at the White House.

I'm freaking out.

Freaking out.

I will also be taking a tour of the White House.

I'm freaking out.

Freaking out.

This is a dress I sewed last week before my presidential invitation. It has contrasting dark brown thread; I added a pocket with a buttonhole and vintage button, and sewed a little brown flower with a vintage button center.

I'm freaking out.

Can you tell?

What fun! I can't wait to hear the breakfast stories. Maybe if you leaned in and gave the president a smooch, your picture would be taken, and your dress would get World Wide Press! I love your dress with the flower and button details. Have Fun !
