Jen found a bodice, collar and sleeve pattern on the Internet. She made the bodice out of paper towels and discovered that it had no seam allowances, nor any allowance for overlapping for fastening the back. She altered the pattern, so that it would fit and then got to work. Today, Mindy got her new dress. It was threatening to rain, but she didn't care - she wanted to get her picture taken with the flowers outside. The impatiens are still blooming, and the Autumn Joy Sedum are turning a darker pink.
