and the Winner is . . .

A write in candidate suggested originally by Rachelle! I used larger (1.25") self-covered buttons. I used half-ball buttons and covered them with left over dress fabric and a very thin layer of batting. The poor dogs didn't know where to hide - I was pounding the buttons and JB was building deck. I did manage to finish the dress. Lou is wearing it right now (I promise Marji I'll get it back before the week is over). It fits me much better than it fits Lou (as she's a little bit skinnier than I am still). I have a pair of pumps that are darn close to the same color as the background of this dress. They also happen to be linen. So, that's how I'll be wearing it. Pictures to follow.
