I managed to make another dress for Avril this afternoon / evening. As you can see, I purchased tights to go with the dresses.

I got the tights first, actually, and then took the tights with me to the fabric store to find material that matched them. I've learned not to pick fabric first because I can never count on finding tights that match the fabric I choose. Stores just don't offer that large of a selection of tights and even if they have pink, it might not be anywhere near the right shade of pink. So, I've found that it's best to go at it the other way around. There are hundreds and hundreds of fabrics and I know I am bound to find something that I like that also matches any color tights I bring with me, so I get the tights first.
