I mentioned the other day that South West Trading asked me to take a dress they had made and use it as a basis for creating a new sample with a pattern. I ended up changing a few things-made it a top down raglan, took out some crochet, and changed colors less frequently-but of course used the fuzzy and very soft SWTC Pagoda yarn they were after. Now, I'll admit that using this yarn for a dress would not have occured to me independently, but look at my daughter's face while trying on the sample (they just happened to want it in her size):
She didn't want to me to pack it up. I guess I'll have to make another one of these days.
