Sorry I've been away so long, but I desperately needed a 4 day weekend and spent some time with my family in Bryan and Houston. While I was there, I ended up making some progress in my dress search.
Since I could not find a suitable tunic dress for less than $100, I've decided to go a different route. I went to JoAnn's fabric and found a 99 cent pattern (the bottom middle option below) plus black eyelet fabric and interlining all for $20.
I'm going to have a dress made and hopefully, end up with what I want for under $75. Has anyone had this done in Dallas before? Where should I go?
