Thanks to everyone for your comments on my near miss dress.
I forgot to upload this picture last night and I do think it gives a slightly different view of the dress, so I'm including it here, partly to share it and partly because I've been a lazy sewist and gotten nothing at all done tonight that wasn't outside in the garden, and I don't always want to write about the garden.
And I just did a post with cat photos because I couldn't come up with anything else.
So there you have it. Gratuitous dress photo. Lazy sewist. Rained-on gardener. Happy.
