Dots at Liberty

I don’t think I’ve posted about this yet — it’s a hybrid Frankendress of Liberty Schlesinger (which I’ve used before and still think looks like a cricket-ball print) with the bodice from  and the same skirt (only deeper pleats) as this dress ().

Isabelle: So that’s what he said to me — honestly Estelle — I thought I was going to fall down laughing right then and there.

Estelle: I can’t take it!

Isabelle: Seriously I thought he was going to bust a gasket. I have never seen a man so upset in my life.

Estelle: And he really just said that? Like, out loud? Did he hear himself?

Isabelle: Totally! Right as it came out of his mouth. And then he got even madder!

Estelle: So he really, truly said “Not all men say ‘not all men'”?

Isabelle: I got it on video. I’m thinking animated .gif with a dance beat!
