Notes: A retired home economics teacher, Connie has been sewing at Apple Annie Fabrics for 40 years! Her creations are always meticulously made and feature great attention to detail. This shirtwaist dress is no exception. Using a multi-colored pastel-striped Italian linen, along with a perfectly co-ordinated linen print, she added a great contrasting piping. The gum-drop-like buttons match the colors in the stripes. This one-of-a-kind look is what we all admire about Connie and what we have come to expect from this talented sewist.
