I found a really cute braided cording at JoAnn's fabric to use for the drawstring. I think I've said it before but I hate the JoAnns by my house and if it wasn't for the fact that it's only 5 minutes away I'm sure I wouldn't shop there.
The khaki's will go great with the Simplicity 2852 tunic. My Mother use to always say that I shouldn't wear beige because I am beige so of course I wear it all the time.
I made promises to sew maxi dresses for my friend's daughter and my DD and Hancock's had a really great 4th of July sale so there should be some interesting things coming out of my sewing room soon.
I hope everyone had a great 4th of July.
