I love what you did with this dress! I tried the pattern and couldn't get it to fit very close, but it looks smashing on you! Maybe I need to try it again...

OMGosh. You and the dress are equally fantastic, really. I hopped on over to your blog (not easy for a 60-something y/o BTW) and perused what you did there. Our Lord has certainly blessed you with extraordinary talent as well as an eye for fashion. Thanx SEW much for sharing. I truly enjoyed your review and blog. May God continue to bless you.
