I'm not sure what to think of this. I really like Zappos but I noticed lately that Overstock and Amazon did have the better prices. However, Zappos is really amazing about sending things back. They get that shoes fit differently on different people. I'm not sure if Amazon will keep that aspect of Zappos intact or not...

Pink Linen

The last dress I want to do before Pennsic (woohoo!) is out of a lovely carnation pink linen that is oh so soft and oh so beautiful. I took it out of the dryer and just loved it. Now, the problem is what style of dress to make with it. (BTW, I'll post the blue linen dress I pretty much finished later. I just need to do the stupid eyelets!)

I'm thinking another pink Italian dress. I love the lines of the late 15th c/early 16th c gowns. I already have umm...a few. (Black velvet, gold puffy, black dead dino that had the awesome floral pattern, cream one I need to fix, blue linen, pink jacquard that goes with the grey silk one I'm almost finished with, and probably a few others I can't remember off the top of my head) However, I'm open to other ideas that are fairly quick and easy. (I can get an Italian dress together in a couple of hours if I really wanted to..)
