I could've danced all night...

 When Pattern Review announced that it was having its 20th Anniversary Contest, I knew I had to make something to show my appreciation for this sewing site. With my obsession for Alabama Chanin, I knew I had to make something that would be represent my love for both, and thus, I knew I had to sew this dress.

What can I say? It's a great twirling dress, and makes me want to dance....hehe...Let's do this!

I used the Alabama Chanin Panel Tank pattern, and hand-sewed everything....reverse-appliqués, the seams, and binding. The pattern I airbrushed on the first layer is also by Alabama Chanin called New Leaves.
