I love this pattern! After several years of trying for a 'Flag' look, I think this one is a keeper! I did use older dyes which came out more faded than I would have liked, but the pattern itself is one I plan to do a lot more, using fresh dyes. I planned to keep this one anyway, so the fact that it's faded is no biggie. I'll be wearing this to the Flagstaff Tea Party tomorrow... Happy Independence Day!
