And for the stash bust count, this is item #5 of the second round. horray and huzzah! (like I didn't just break it. ah well I'm going to keep chugging through it, trying to limit the insanity.)
Now onto the modcloth dress -- after rinsing, washing and drying not only was the fabric more of a spring green than the forest I had been aiming for, but it was also much more tightly woven thanks to the hot water and the hot dryer. Both of these, although unintended, work to my advantage - I think the lighter color is actually prettier than what was on the bottle, and goes with the buttons I had chosen rather nicely. The tighter weave means I don't have to line it, which leaves lots of fabric for another project!
